Crayon Resist

These are the cards that we made at my Crayon Resist Techniques Class afew weeks ago. Everyone loved the cards, but I am less than impressed with my photography skills.

The main trick when doing crayon resist is to use a WAX CRAYON. The best ones I have found are the crayola twistables, as they don't break & always keep a good tip.

Stampsets: Lovely as a Tree, It's your Birthday
Cardstock: Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip, Old Olive, Basic Black, White Gloss
Ink: Black Staz On, Choc Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: Daubers, Color Spritzer, Choc Chip Stampin' Wrtie Marker, Choc Wide Grosgrain, Round Tab Punch

This next card is a modified version of one we were shown at Convention - I loved the colours & layout so much I had to CASE it. If someone can remember the demonstrators name I would love to give her credit.

Stampsets: Time Well Spent, Sanded background, Lots of Thoughts (retired SAB set)
Cardstock: River Rock, Purely Pomegranite, Vellum Cardstock, White Gloss
Ink: Black Staz On, River Rock, Purely Pomegranite, Groovy Guava
Accessories: Daubers, Double Stitched Guava Grosgrain, Mat Pack & Piercing tool

If you couldn't make it to the class but would like to make these cards let me know - I can run the class again, or get together with afew of your friends & I will travel to your house & teach you. The next technique covered in my classes will be Faux Metal on the 23rd of May at 7pm.

Don't forget to leave a comment on my previous post to be in the running to win one of the cute little triangle boxes & some new ribbon samples.
