I dabbed the matte medium over the stencil and then I dried it before I added my ink. I used two colors of Distress Ink and a lot of water for this technique. And the Matte Medium does a great job at resisting the Distress Ink, but you have to keep in mind that Matte Medium is transparent and the part of the paper that doesn't have the medium will absorb the ink. And with all the water that I added the colors soaked in to the paper and spread along the fibers, which moved some of the color to the areas where I had put Matte Medium on top. So I got some color behind the Matte Medium, mostly around the edges. This was exactly what I intended and hoped would happen when I added all that water, but if you don't want this to happen you have to be more careful with the amount of water you use or use an opaque resist medium.
I also filmed a tutorial for this card that you can find on my YouTube channel or here below.
