Resist Birthday Cards

September 24, 2017

My husband’s best friends’ birthday was last week. My kiddos made him some birthday cards. They had such a good time playing with water coloring and resists.


Blue card


Orange Card


Size:  Vertical side fold and a Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  We began these cards with panels of water color paper that I had die cut with a stitched rectangle die. Each kiddo decided on their card design and I used Versa Mark and white heat embossing powder to create the designs.

We used Distress Ink as water colors. I taped the panels down first. Then the kiddos painted on some clear clean water on their panels and began dropping in colors. We let the first layers of color dry while we had dinner. Then we added a second layer of color. After the second layer was dry, we added some splatters of ink.

Once the splatters were dry, we adhered each panel to a coordinating card base with foam tape. The kiddos were so please with their creations.
