Crayon Resist

Sorry for the delay in posting the club samples from last week. The weekend was rather busy with stuff, and I've been trying to make some swap cards this week. Have a few done, but not anywhere near what I'd like.

This card uses Basic Black & Tempting Turquoise Cardstock for the background & base, and Glossy Cardstock for the top. We started with plain Glossy, and stamped with Black Stazon the open flower and butterfly images. HINT: Let the Cardstock sit for a bit after stamping the Stazon Images. Glossy takes a while to try, even for quick drying Stazon. Then, we took a crayon and colored a little inside the flower and butterfly. When we sponged ink over then, where the crayon is resists the ink. Yoyo Yellow was used over the butterfy and flower, and Tempting Turquoise in all the other areas. You end up with green in a few areas from combining the Turquoise & Yellow. Take a Kleenex or paper towel and rub over the crayoned images to remove extra ink. When dry, add the small black flowers filling in the extra spaces. Add ribbon, and oval greeting.

Stamping on glossy takes a little practice and a light touch! Give it a try!!
