Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

The stamp set used here is Botanical Dreams by Gina K. Designs.

For this card, I used a technique called crayon resist. For those of you who haven't tried it, it's easy and provides a spectacular result.

To begin, I used Stazon black ink, Asela's large flower image and a piece of glossy white card stock. I randomly stamped the flower image all over the piece of glossy card stock.

Then, using a white crayon, I colored areas of the flowers that I wanted to remain white. I colored the majority of the petals for a dramatic look.  Sometimes it's hard to see where you've already colored but if you tip the card stock into the light, you can see the wax against the glossy cardstock.

Next, I sponged Stampin' Up classic ink in More Mustard and Really Rust all over the top of the flowers, covering all of the white areas with color.

I allowed the ink to dry for a minute or two and then, using a piece of paper towel, I wiped the surface. (You will see a dramatic result as the ink comes off of the flowers but remains vibrant on the rest of the card stock.)

Here is a close up view.

What summery cheerful colors! And I have Crayons -- I can try this ♥ Thank you for so much inspiration!

I'm not Gina, but I can tell you about that sponge.  It looks like a basic round sponge, like Stampin Up sells, and is cut into fourths.  The jumbo round sponge dauber would do the job:   Any sponge from the cosmetic store will work as well.  

Gina...this is really nice....and it looks fun to do. Remembering when I was little I had crayons.....who doesn't love crayons? That's why they made Copics And Spectrum Noir...for us big little girls to color with! I still love crayons. I'm gonna make this card with my Granddaughter. Fun and Easy! I like that. Gina....I just have to say "YOU ROCK!"
