Using Kraft Resist

First off I have to share that my Bright and Bold Card won over at Dilly Beans, check out that post here
I'm super stoked to get started on their newest Challenge "hearts"

Ok, so today I finally had some quiet time to myself in the craft room...
I had swung by Michaels yesterday on my way to work and picked up a pad of
kraft resist from Tim Holtz (after I saw his tutorial on his blog here)

I didn't really have anything in mind when I started, was just gonna play with the product a little bit
This is what ended up happening!
The kraft resist is basically kraft paper that has varnished images on it...
When you ink over these images and wipe the ink away there is color on page everywhere
but where the varnish is... It's a pretty cool effect.
As I was just playing around, I didn't care too much about color, but I think this
little card ended up pretty cute!
I did a sentiment only card per the challenge over at creative inspirations
Plus the bling (sorry it doesn't photograph very well!)
on the sentiment for the bling it up and gems and twine at cute card Thursday and
Crafty Creations respectively.
I also hand dyed and stamped the background for the anything goes challenge,

and added the buttons for the challenge over at corrosive challenges by janet
Finally, the background is mostly all hand made, the inking, the stamping, ect ect that is for
the challenge over at Anything goes challenge make your own background
I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!!
I am on a mini mostly staycation next week, so I will be in the
craft room with the kitty!
