Glue Resist with Rubber Stamps and Distress Inks

I really like the glue resist technique using the Dylusions spray but I also really love playing with my distress inks and stamps. To show the enhanced effect this resist can have I inked both sides of the tag with Distress Inks (scattered twig, marmalade, shabby shutters). Then, instead of doing the resist with a stencil, I "glued up" one of Dyan Reaveley's stamps with Ranger collage glue and stamped the glue onto the tag twice. (NOTE: Be sure to clean glue off stamp right away with warm water!). The glue needs to be completely dry before you proceed so I helped it along a bit with the heat gun.
Once glue is dry, use a baby wipe to lightly brush the extra color off the resist areas -- being sure not to press down too hard. Then another swipe with the heat gun and you're ready to stamp, embellish.. whatever. I think the resist technique "popped" this flower stamp to make it a more interesting design.

Dylusions meets Disney and Distress Reinkers

Had a great picture of the castle left when I finished my 60 page Disney vacation scrapbook .... not sure how I like the translation into Dylusions.. this was a page I haa already sprayed.. Doodled a bit and used a Mickey & Minnie stamp I really like. Tag was sprayed with Dylusions and the flowers and birds from one of Dyan's stamp sets colored with Distress reinkers. Love how bright and cheerful it turned out.. may turn into a page at some point.
