I just can't resist that crayon resist!

While my sister was here I wanted to show her the Crayon Resist
Technique. We stamped up an A4 piece of gloss card with the retired
SU set Floral Fest. We stamped the flowers with Stazon then sponged
them with Buckaroo Blue, Purely Pomengrate, Wild Wasabi, Chameo Coral
and Sky Blue SU Inks.

This card we used the retired SU BG stamp Crosshatch with Buckaroo Blue ink
on '08 in colour card Blue Bayou. We matted Purely Pomengrate card at the
top and wild wasabi at the bottom. We used puches small oval for the wild
wasabi and word window with the Chameo coral. I stamped the Happy
Birthday with a Hero Arts Pixie words set. We finished it off with a couple of
leaves on the wording and an extra flower that has been raised on top of the
other flowers.

It is really hard to photo the gloss paper, and I didn't have time to play
around. For this one we stamped the Purely Pomengrate with the outline
stamp in the PP ink. Backed the gloss with Groovy Guava and Wild
Wasabi, then stamped Happy Birthday from the SU retired set Warmest
Regards with Basic Black ink then punched out using the large oval punch
and tied on using gold cord.This one is very straightforward it is layered onto black, PP, Wild Wasabi
and Blue Bayou the stamp which is from stamp world is stamped on in
Basic Black.

The last one is similar it is backed with PP and WW which has been punched
using the new border scallop punch then put onto a Blue Bayou Card.
Another flower was cut out and raised at the bottom, then it was stamped
with Happy Birthday from the SU retired set Warmest Regards.

Well hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed making them.
This is one technique that always wows new stampers and I'm glad my sister
and I had a play at it.
