Resist Technique

I love the color black! OK, so black really isn't a color... I still love it's simple elegance. Something else I love is crayons. As a child I loved getting a new box of crayons when school started. To this day I still love to color and if they sold the aroma of a box of crayons in a bottle.... Let's just say I would buy a gallon of it! LOL

I tried a new resist technique (new to me anyway) when creating this card. Here is the recipe-

Glossy card stock

Black Staz On Ink (stamped image)

Stamp (I used a Gina K stamp from the new Eclectic Summer Collection)

Crayola White crayon

Memento Inks (Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa)

Martha Stewart Mini Heart Edger

Black and Tan Cardstock

Stampin Up Black Ribbon

Cricut Wild Card Cartridge (thanks image 1 1/2 inch Real Dial Size)

Robins Nest Dew Drops (black)

Stamp image with Staz On ink onto the glossy cardstock. Allow image to dry fully (10 minutes minimum). Color image with white crayon. Don't worry about filling the image in completely. This technique is perfect for coloring outside the lines! Sponge Memento inks one color at a time onto the image (including over the flowers you have just colored in). Wipe image with paper towel (where the crayon was used). This will removed the ink and leave the fun "white" image. I then trimmed a piece of black cardstock with the MS punch and placed on a 5 X 7 inch piece of tan cardstock. The card is completed with a nice ribbon, dew drops and thanks image from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge. Let your imagination run wild!
