Here is the process, using the Val Spar directly to the background stamp, I used a written words stamp and the Val Spar was a little too runny for this process, so next time I will use a different stamp or figure out a way to get a lighter coat applied. I used the "Tim Holtz" Wild Flower stamp set and I love that sentiment. It was mounted to a Stampin Up punch. I did a very light wash of gesso and then wiped it with a paper towel.
this is a side view so you are able to see the resist. A little tip, you want the Val Spar to dry completely on its own before you heat set it or you will get some bubbling, it really didn't matter on this card, in fact it gave it a little more definition of being antiqued.
Happy Weekend. Hugs
