I have been playing a lot lately with the crayon resist technique. It was the subject of a recent technique swap I was in and ever since I’ve had the bug. I found though that the end result relies somewhat on the “crayon” that you are using. I started by pinching one of the kids’ el-cheapo ones but it seemed to leave small indents on the glossy cardstock (probably had something to do with how long it had been hanging around in the pencil case). I bought a few others, even an expensive one from my local art shop, but I have to say that I eventually settled for a Crayola Twistable. It worked perfect and was very smooth on the cardstock as well as being easy to rub off.
This card was one of the samples for last weeks Technique class and features the Stipple Rose stamp which I have been using quite a bit lately. The inks are Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss and a touch of Blush Blossom and the ribbon is the beautiful
taffeta from the new catty hmmmmmmm very nice. I have to thank my new friend Catherine for teaching me how to tie a bow properly. Her instructions have yet to fail me and now my bows are nice and straight rather than looking like somthing tied from straw. Thanks Catherine.
oh wow I am soooo going to case this for my techniques class.
absolutely beatiful.Love the technique and I too would love to know how to tie bows properly – I always have lots of trouble. Can you give me any tips please…
