Repeat Impressions POTW- Distressed Stickles Resist Background Tutorial

Hi Everyone, Deonna here with the Repeat Impressions project of the week.  I've chosen to show you how to make a Distressed Stickles Resist Background today.  It is so easy and i just love the results. See what you think.

Supplies that you will need:

Stickles in the colors that you want to use- I'm using Broken China and Antique Linen.
Glossy Cardstock- mine is Ranger, any will work fine
Distress inks- Broken China and Antique Linen
Blending Tool
Black Archival ink by Ranger
Stamps- Repeat Impressions- 5120-K, Palm Frond Sil. (lg), 2408-N, Large Palm Trees, Sentiment- 

Step 1- Gather Supplies and Cut your cardstock to the size you want your card to be. I'm making a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" inch card.
Step 2- Place glitter glue over the area that you want the ink to resist. Allow to Dry. You can heat set this if you own a heat tool.

Step 3- Taking your Distress inks and distress tool, ink the areas that you want colored in a circular motion until desired color.  I used Broken china for my top 3/4 of the background and Antique linen for the bottom 1/4.  Allow to dry or heat set.

Step 4- Using your Repeat Impression stamps, stamp the image on the cardstock with Black Archival ink.  I wanted my Palm tree to be in the Sand and the Palm fronds to be around the outside of the card.

Complete your card by mounting, adding embellishments, or just stamping a sentiment.

So fun and So Easy! Have a great day!
