Resist Technique with A Year of Flowers 2

Today Melanie will show you how to do a crayon resist technique with the A Year of Flowers 2 set. The sketchy, whimsical style of these seasonal flowers is perfect for this technique! You will love having these pops of color on your holiday cards, so easy for mass production. This technique is traditionally done with a white crayon and glossy cardstock, but in a pinch, you can substitute regular white cardstock and a white pencil, producing slightly softer but still beautiful results. Greeting is from Fabulous Holiday Fillers.

Love this, and I have this set.  Both of them, actually.  I forgot the poinsettia was on it!  Oops.

Well, now I remember, and need to try this, as soon as I find a kid with crayons.  Just kidding, I have my own set, thank you very much!  haha

Melanie, once again, you rock, woman!!!

I didn't think I would like this technique, but I found I LOVE it.  I have the stamp set, and can't wait until the weekend when I can play with this technique.  It's so beautiful.  Thanks for the video.  I love watching you on these.

thanks, everybody!

Mildred, it happens, I've done that, too.  Next time, just do a little at a time, then look at it, and if needed add just a little as you go. :) I'm glad you tried it out already.  You'll be rocking it in not time!

My card is a little heavy on the green.  I need to practice more.  

Thank you. I will keep trying.

This is so much more simple than I thought it would be, and yet it just it's so elegant and WOW!!!
