Spotlight: I cannot resist a white crayon!

As I promised last night. I have been working on some pretty projects using this months product, glossy white cardstock. For this card I used a technique called Crayon Resist. This is one of my favourite techniques to do as it has such a pretty and unpredictable outcome.
How it works is you cut your glossy white cardstock to size. Stamp your image in Stazon (Permanent Ink) being careful not to smudge it as the glossy cardstock can be slippery. Then take a white wax based crayon pressing firmly colour in the parts of your image that you want to remain white. Then take a sponge and sponge on your colour/s OR use a brayer. Once all colour has been added rub the cardstock with a paper towel to get the excess wax off. Then finish your card and Voila!
Stamp Sets: Petal Prints, Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: Orchid Opulence, Basic Black
Ink: Black Stazon, Orchid Opulence, Regal Rose, Purely Pomegrante
Accessories: Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Black Eyelets, Crop a dile, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, White Crayon

Alternatively if my quick instructions wasn't enough detail for you there is also a great visual tutorial on splitcoast stampers which can be found here.
Have a lovely weekend.
