Crayon Resist Flores Suaves

I have lots of samples I created for my presentation this last weekend at the Nebraska Mini Convention. I had lots of fun and learned several new things!!! I even had to become a pirate for a short while and MAYBE I'll share a picture of that later in the week!

To start sharing, I've decided my make-n-take would be first. I touched on several techniques, but this one used Crayon Resist.

All the attendees had to do was the focal image on here. Actually, they just had to use the crayon for resist, then sponge color over. This stamp set is Flores Suaves from the Spanish Idea Book & Catalog. It is available to anyone!

For the background, I stamped the scripted words on the left side, and the butterflies at varying angles on the right side in Crushed Curry on Barely Banana. For the butterfly, I took glossy cardstock and stamped the butterfly with Jet Black Stazon first. When dry, I masked it and stamped the words over it. To do the technique you need a white or clear crayon ( or any light color). Use the crayon to color on the butterfly wherever you don't want color to be. We sponged Barely Banana around the edge of the words, and Crushed Curry over the center of the butterfly. When done sponging, use a tissue to rub off the crayon and the extra ink from the glossy cardstock. Each one will look different, depending on the amount of crayon, pattern of crayon, and amount of ink applied.

Stay tuned for many more samples!! I have several more featuring Crayon resist, some with Spot Background, and some with Rolling Marble.
