Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Crayon Resist!

I don't have a step-by-step tutorial today for Tuesday Techniques but I will explain how I accomplished the "Crayon Resist Technique" if you keep reading. Notice the nice woodgrain background on the card below:

This technique requires only 2 simple steps. I first started by cutting a "Top Note Die" shape using "Glossy Paper" and my "Big Shot Machine":

Place the glossy paper inside of the "Woodgrain Embossing Folder" making sure that the 'bumps" are under the glossy paper and that the glossy paper is facing upwards. Using a white crayon, rub the crayon over the glossy paper. When rubbing the crayon, position the crayon so it is laying flat on the paper, meaning vertical. Once you have completely covered the whole cardstock piece, remove the paper from the embossing folder and place on your work station.

Using a "Sponge Dauber" or "Brayer" and "Soft Suede Ink", cover the glossy paper with ink. You will notice that the crayon markings resist the ink. Once the paper is completely covered with ink, use a soft tissue to remove any residue. That simple!

  • Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Glossy Paper, Whisper White
