Challenge # 21 Resist Techniques

Well, here we are on Good Friday ready to set you another challenge at The Stampman, but firstly we'd like to thank you all for the stunning entries we received to our Embossed challenge last time. The standard was amazing and the Winners will be announced next Friday, Royal Wedding Day, so don't forget to tear yourselves away from the TV for a few seconds to check back in with us.

Onto this Friday's challenge and this time we are asking you to RESIST. No not chocolate as my Hubby enquired. We want you to have a play with a resist technique, so get out your paints, inks and embossing powders and start playing. If you haven't tried anything like this before some of the Design Team have provided tutorials or links to tutorials to get you started and give you some ideas.

As always the Winner will receive a £10 voucher from The Stampman and the challenge runs until Thursday 5th May, so all that remains is for me to hand you over to our Design Team who have been very busy resisting !!!! this beautiful weather to provide you with some fantastic inspiration.
