Cards made with the crayon resist technique often yield beautiful results that can impress people into asking if your creation was store bought instead of being hand made.
"Artists are just children
who refuse to put down their crayons".
This technique is relatively simple to master and may only take a couple of practice sessions for you to get quite beautiful finished images to use in your handmade greeting cards. It almost reminds me of a watercoloured look.
This was one of the first
techniques I learned about when I first started papercrafting and it has
remained a favourite of mine.
And all you need is some simple additions to your usual papercraft supplies!
Here's how I made the sample card shown above. Please note the stamp set is no longer available. Use any large and kind of open flower stamp to create a similar look:
Below is another example of how to use this great technique, incorporating the torn paper technique as well.
If you make a card using the crayon resist technique, please do let me see your work!
Do you make greeting cards? Please do share it with me.
