Crayon Resist

This morning it is pretty windy outside so I decided rather than go for a power walk and risk aggravating my allergies, I would go into my drawer of scraps where I have a bunch of stamped pieces that have never gotten used. Well today is the day to use some! This card was made using a really great resist technique that is a crayon resist technique. All stamps and stickers are by Stampendous.
1. Stamp leaves on glossy paper with black StazOn.
2. Color areas that you want to keep white with a white or clear crayon.
3. Stipple lettuce and currant inks on the glossy panel, blending the colors in the center where they meet.
4. Wipe off panel with a paper towel, rubbing where the crayon is to reveal the white paper.
5. Tear the top left corner, layer onto a black panel and wrap with gold cord.
6. Layer onto a gold panel and apply circle stickers to the top left corner.
7. Place a key sticker to acetate and cut out. Punch a hole in the top with a micro punch.
8. Stamp sentiment on a small tag with black ink and sponge edges with currant ink.
9. Attach the key and tag to the gold cord, tying it with bronze cord.
10. Place key hole sticker to the right side of a burgundy card and stamp the card with a marble stamp and VersaMark ink. (It's hard to see this in the picture).
11. Glue down stamped image and you are done.

Gorgeous card Jamie. I've never been able to do anything with my alcohol inks so may have to give this a try.

It just FEELS like a fresh breeze rushing by, to look at this! I've used that crayon resist technique but only in my journals -- it looks so good this way, too.

Isn't this the coolest technique! I just bought some Hero Arts stamps that I wanted to try that technique with. Thanks for the inspiration!
