This card combines Day 335's Super Sketchy Sunday, Sketch over at 365 Cards and the current colour combination Challenge #177 at Colour Throwdown of Melon Mambo, Black and White.
I used lots of my Stampin' Up Items for this one. Its been a while but for my background I used one of their Wheels, along with their square punch, heart punch, and scallop trim punch. The inks and cardstock are also Stampin' Up. The sentiment is however from Unity Stamp Company.
I love how it all came together and I love playing with my stamps and this fun technique.
A QUICK HOW TO - CRAYON RESIST BACKGROUND WITH STAMPING
Firstly stamp a design on a piece of cardstock, this can be gloss or normal cardstock. For my stamped design I used a Stampin' Up Wheel.
Once your design is stamped and dry, take a white crayon and randomly draw/trace over parts of the design. I couldn't show this step as white crayon doesn't show easily on a white background.
Once you are happy with your crayon design take a sponge and ink pad and sponge colour over the entire piece.
You will see that where you have used the crayon the colour does not cover. This is the crayon resisting the ink. It works perfectly with alcohol inks also.
Once you have covered entire piece take a soft dry cloth and rub over your design like you are polishing to remove the excess crayon and reveal your design further.
The above photos show the resist done one a piece of gloss card on the left and normal white cardstock on the right.
Your background is now ready to use as desired.
This ATC was created using the Crayon Resist Technique with Alcohol Inks,
for my background, I added further colour over the top using my Tria Markers and some Kindy Glitz.
So why not try this fun method for yourself. Try stamping in different colours and then coloring over the top, use different stamps, use alcohol inks or forget the stamps and simply draw on the surface of your cardstock with your crayon and sponge with different colours to see what happens.
