Kristie from Kristie Kreates here today.
I recently learned a new technique for creating a background
and I thought I'd share it with y'all.
The "glue resist" technique is pretty easy
and a little different than any I've seen before.
Pick out a stamp that you'd like for a background and
rub a glue stick over the image.
Stamp it onto card stock. I chose to use white.
Once it is stamped, heat it with a heating tool
or let it set for a good long time to be sure the glue is dried.
Now using a blending tool and ink,
I use Tim Holtz Distress Ink,
rub ink over the entire surface.
Using a baby wipe or a damp cloth rub the glue off.
Now you have a nice background to use on a card
or other project.
Be sure to clean that stamp with some
stamp cleaner or a mild soap and water.
If you'd like to see how I used this background,
pop over to my blog and check it out at
Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you'll try this technique, it's fun and
a great way to create something a little different
for your cards and projects.
Until next month, have fun creating!
