Blogger's Challenge - Week #53 Resist Technique


Well, here we are at Friday again and it's time for the next Blogger's Challenge post. In all honesty, I almost "resisted" creating a card for this week, I've had so much on my plate. But, I needed to finish designing for my "Going, Going, Gone" Stamp Camp this Saturday morning, so I figured this card could do double duty.

Bud Basics is the name of this stamp set and yes, it's retiring on this current list. I am sad about this one - it was released around the time I first became a demonstrator, so it's been in my cabinet for a while now.
But, enough melancholy - on with the CARD!
My card base is Tempting Turquoise layered with a piece of Pumpkin Pie Designer Series paper and embellished with some White Taffeta Ribbon (so easy to work with!).
The Green Galore layer is paper pierced all around the edge with the Piercer and Mat Pack from the Crafter's Tool Kit. It's layered with Pumpkin Pie cardstock and again with Whisper White cardstock. NOW, for the RESIST!
The top layer utilizes a piece of Glossy White Cardstock. I stamped the outline images from Bud Basics with Basic Black ink. Then I used a clear wax crayon from my Easter Egg dyeing kit and colored in the areas that I wanted to stay white. (You can also use a white crayon for the same effect)
Next, I used stamping sponges and layered on the colors - Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore and Pumpkin Pie.
Once I was sure it was dry, I wiped the crayon residue off with a napkin and VOILA! - Bright, fun, Crayon Resist! :)
To finish off the card, I used some of my FAVORITE Rhinestone Brads and stamped the sentiment from All Holidays onto Whisper White cardstock. I punched it out with the Word Window punch and wrapped it around the top two layers. Popped up on dimensionals, this card is done!
I hope you like these fun colors - I needed something cheerful today and though I don't often work with Bold Brights, these just seemed to lift my mood today!
Happy Weekend everyone!
Robin
