I am linking up today's post once again with Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration , stop by and check out the others inspiration for today.
Like I said yesterday I am doing a week of challenges with my on line cardmaking group and we are to use gesso as a resist, apply gesso to your stamp with either paint brush or foam brush, I used a sponge. I didn't end up having any gesso like I thought I did so I had to use Liquitex Gel medium in Glossy heavy gel. It took all night to dry, then I added my distress inks to the different areas, it sure is a different look then I have ever done before, I may try it again if I ever actually get gesso, I am sure it would probably go on a little smoother than the gel medium did but it worked. You take a baby wipe after your done inking over the gesso and it reveals you stamped image.
