VIDEO | Mixed Media Background with Distress Resist Spray

Hello there, today I have a card to share using various different media to create an interesting background. I used Distress Resist Spray and as you will see, it didn't quite turn out as I expected!

I started off my card by die cutting a panel of watercolour paper using the rectangle die from the Crafti Potential A2 Stitched Rectangles - Fleur de Lis die set. I then decided to create my own stencil. I die cut a piece of Yupo paper using the Petal Trellis Die from The Christina Collection available at CraftStash, which they kindly sent me to play with. I love creating stencils from Yupo as they are hard-wearing and can be cleaned with water without damaging them.

I placed the panel and the stencil inside a cardboard box and sprayed the piece with Distress Resist Spray. This stuff will stick to anything (you cannot wash it off) so spraying inside a cardboard box is ideal. After spraying, I cleaned the nozzle with a baby wipe (which Tim Holtz advises to do) and placed my stencil in a tub of water to clean. You need to add the stencil to water straight away, otherwise you will not get the spray off!

Taking some Tonic Aqua Flow Pens, I added colour to the panel as well as some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I had hoped the Resist Spray would resist the water based Aqua Flow Pens but it didn't. It actually seeped in to it to create darker areas. Oh well! I do like how the background come out none the less. I then dried it with a heat tool (the Distress Resist Spray is heat stable). The panel was added to a white A2 card base with foam sheet and double sided tape.

I took a butterfly from The Christina Collection Layered Butterflies Die Set, which was also kindly sent to me from CraftStash, and die cut this from vellum and from white cardstock. I layered these together with Multi Medium Matte glue and then added it on to the card, again with MMM. The sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted Tiny Type set was stamped with black ink on to white cardstock and cut in to a strip. This was added to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Jewels.


 Here is a look at how I made the card:
