Hi, everyone. It's Monika back with another spotlight post. Today I am playing with children's wax crayons. Yes, they are the same parents buy to keep their children occupied during the long summer holidays. I wanted to see if it was possible to create resist effects combining crayons and ink blending. The stamps I used are from the current stamp club set, Floral Bliss. Here is how I got on:
- I started off by stamping and white embossing the larkspur stamp.
- Next I added some highlights to the embossed image and in a few places outside of where my frame was going to be using a white wax crayon.
- Then I blended tempting turquoise ink all over and added some more crayon before stamping my frame in black and the larkspur in pacific point.
- To finish, I blended pacific point around the edges and a little over my embossed flower, added the sentiment, some highlights with a glitter gel pen and a white doodled border
There is also a video on how I made this card. I was meant to be a short one, but then I got into wonky stamping, which called for a rescue mission. If you fancy having a look, here it is, easy to craft along:
