Make it Monday, #129-Crayon Resist

When Nichole challenged us to break out the crayons, I thought, "This'll be easy!". Not so. I don't know whether it's the make of crayon that matters, but I had to scrub really hard to get the crayon to stick on the paper, and you couldn't really tell where the crayon was. So, I'm not sure if I'm happy with this result, or not. It's kind of distressed looking, I think, and the top flower turned out better than the bottom one. I may have to try this again, using the crayon as snow, instead of white tips of flowers.
Stamps: YOF: Mums (and dies), Wishing You
Paper: Kraft, Vintage White, Simply Chartruese
Inks: Versafine Black, Simply Chartruese, Seedless Preserves (TH Distress)
Other: Sketched Shapes die, Cuttlebug folder, rhinestones coloured with a Copic, Clear embossing powder, white crayon

Thanks for looking!

  1. You're too hard on yourself...this is beautiful! When I've done crayon resist before, it's always been on glossy cardstock, and that makes it quite easy for the crayon to adhere to the card...just a thought! :0)

  2. I can't imagine this better. The bottom is subtle and the front flower is more intense. Really a beautiful result all around. Great background too!
