Get Creative - My challenge for October!

Good morning!!!

oooh yes, it's my turn to set the Get Creative, yoohooooo!!!

So, for this challenge, what I would like you to do is to use the resist technique!

The are so many ways to do the resist technique (one of my favourite techniques!). I have prepared a number of small cards with different techniques to give you an idea. I hope you will find them helpful! So here are all the cards together:

And each of the card separately with a short description of the technique:

Resist with white embossing powder:
(First you do your heat embossing and then colour the rest of the area)

Matte media Resist:
(You stamp with Matte Media instead of an ink, and once it has dried, you colour the rest of the area)
(For this technique I used a foam stamp)

Acrylic paint resist:
(You stamp with acrylic paint instead of an ink and, once dried, you colour the rest of the area)

Resist with white embossing powder on canvas:
(You heat emboss on the canvas, colour the rest of the area with a water-based ink like Distress Ink and then you mist it with water)

Oil pastel resist:
(You draw your image with white oil pastel and then you colour the rest of the area)

Embossing ink on glossy paper:
(You stamp with an embossing ink like Versamark. Once it has dried completely, you colour the rest of the area and puff the excess ink with a slightly wet cloth)

"Trapped" resist with clear embossing powder:
(You stamp your image with a colour ink and the image you want to show below the embossing. Then you continue with the clear embossing technique)

I hope you got an idea... If you have any questions or want more details regarding the techniques, please feel free to ask!

So why don't you try out your favourite technique? We would like very much to see your cards! A lucky winner will get the following gift:

Dont forget to post your card to the side bar under the challenge link. The challenges will be running till the 29th of October and the winners will be announced on the 31st of October.
