Crayon Resist Technique

As promised yesterday, here is my quick photo tutorial on the Crayon Resist Embossing Technique.  Here is my card from yesterday:

This is a blue crayon with Pistachio Pudding ink.

Begin by embossing your Whisper White card stock and finding your crayons.

Choose your color and remove the paper wrapper.  This makes it so much easier to use.

Rub your crayon over the raised image.

Use a sponge or Dauber to rub the ink onto the card stock.  Use a tissue to wipe off excess ink from the crayon (where the ink will be resisted by the crayon).

Play around with color combinations.  Both of my samples use 2 colors, but you can mix and match with 2, 3 or more colors.  Have fun and experiment.

After punching out the butterflies, I covered them with Crystal Effects.

Lovely Amazing You

The Lovely Amazing You stamp set is one of the photopolymer sets that Stampin' Up! has been releasing each month.  That special monthly release has ended now that SU has made the decision to continue the photopolymer stamp sets in all of their upcoming catalogs.  

Here is the card we made in a recent class.

Inks and Papers:  Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Bermuda Bay, Watercolor Paper

Lightly spritz the watercolor paper after stamping for a different look.  Be sure to hold the Stampin' Spritzer far back from the watercolor paper.  You can always spritz more than once, but do so lightly each time.

Inside Sentiment.

Stamp Sets:  Painted Petals, Lovely Amazing You
