I had just a few moments to play in my crafty space today. On my way outside now to paint some bookshelves for my classroom. I am hoping the clouds stay back long enough for the paint to dry. Oh dear!
This card is truly out of my comfort zone. It is quirky and whimsical. I am playing along with this week's Papertrey's Make It Monday Challenge. We are to use crayon resist technique. I generally love this technique; however, I had some issues with my crayon. I have a white twist up crayola crayon. I am thinking the wax content is either really low or really old at this point. A lot of my ink just absorb over the crayon area anyway. I used white crayon on all the back frames so the white would show through. I used the crayon on the accent images as well as the focal sentiment area. Luckily, that showed pretty well.
I do prefer to do this technique with high gloss paper, but I did not have any. I made my focal point quirky and try to keep the whole card whimsical. I searched my stash of PTI images and realized I have very few if any outlined stamps. Hmmm. In keeping with the whimsical, quirky theme, I cut some pom poms off of a roll of pom pom fringe and added to my seam binding bow. Finished with a couple touches of gems.
Cute and fun! Makes my heart SMILE!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
