Pen Resist Techinque

This is my try at the Pen Resist techinque...We are doing this at Altered_stART yahoo group......Techinque Tuesdays and we have 2 weeks to give it a try....
I used watercolor paper and Krylon Gold leaf pen on 2 of the cards and a silver calligraphy pen on the others...then you are suppose to use liquid watercolors, but I don't have any so I used my Twinkling H2O's and juiced them up good by spraying water on them......after that drys then you are to stamp in black acrylic paint, but I used Staz-On ink pad...the top right one, I didn't stamp cause I liked how it had a stained glass effect.....The silver pen seemed to resist much better than the gold leafing pen....It was fun and now I have some backgrounds....
Edited:....This techinque is from the book, Artist Trading Cards Workshop by Bernie can find the book at Amazon........

ATC for Altered_stART group Mingle

This is my entry for the Mingle at AS yahoo group, the theme is "Song and Dance"

Shattered glass techinque

I read a tutorial on Shattered glass techinque here:
Debbie also has some other neat tutorials on her blog...
I tried it and like it, it was fun, this would be a fun project for kids too...
The techinque uses painters tape (torn in long strips) to block off some parts of your dark (here I used black) cardstock, then apply acrylic paints in different colors, let dry and stamp with Staz-on ink and then pull the tape off....neat huh?
