I will admit it, I am a sucker for resists and masks. I love how they allow you to build layers and depth without much bulk. So I was super excited when I saw the Tim Holtz November tag.
Excited......until I realized that he used rub-ons to created his resist. UGGGGG!!!!! I never got caught up in the rub-on craze. I would rather use a stamp or a sticker any day of the week and twice on Sundays. (I love that saying. So glad I found a way to work it in.)
After much digging and searching I did find a handful of rub-ons I thought I could use. Several of those were no longer usable, but thankfully I did have two or three I could work with. Whew! Read on to learn more.

While I am not a huge fan of rub-ons I might treat myself to some from the Tim Holtz collection. They do look pretty awesome and I love more resist options.
