Blogger's Challenge #53



This week the challenge was to use any resist technique. When I think "resist", I automatically think of Crayon Resist.

I used the Crayon Resist on the card but made a matching gift bag to accompany it.

The card starts with a 3" x 3" piece of glossy cardstock. I stamped the flowers (from the retiring Bud Basics set) using Black StazOn ink. I used a white crayon to color in the areas where I want the ink to resist (stay white).

I then use sponge daubers, starting with the lightest color and working to the darkest. The colors I used on this card are Summer Sun, Only Orange and Pink Passion. After appying the color, I buff off any excess with a paper towel.

The card is finished with a Summer Sand band of cardstock. The edges are paper pierced and sponged with Only Orange ink. I stamped the sentiment (from Hugs & Wishes) in Basic Black ink and added two flowers (one from the Boho Blossom punch and a small Prima from my stash of contraband).

The gift bag is just a small white lunch bag stamped with various images in the same colors from the card. I punched two holes after folding the top over and threaded some Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon for a finishing touch.

I encourage you to click on the Blogger's Challenge icon on the right sidebar of my blog. There you will find all the links to my Blogger's Challenge buddies. Their creations are all amazing!!

Until tomorrow.....Happy Stamping everyone!!
