Crayon resist...

I didn't have a lot of luck photographing this card to show off the crayon resist technique. Basically I used glossy white card stock and stamped the flowers in Basic Black ink.

Then I took a white crayon and colored wherever I didn't want color to stick when sponging on the various colors. After sponging, I took a tissue to wipe where the crayon was, and it shows a bright white. It's striking in person.

There's a little bling with silver brads in the corners and some brocade blue 5/8" grosgrain across the front.

I'd love to see what you can do with this technique... as well as the others below! So share your samples with me.
