This week we are hosting a non-sketch challenge, sponsored by One Stop Cards: the Crayon Resist Technique! You can find a Splitcoast tutorial by Beate for this fun technique HERE. Basically, a white crayon is used to highlight areas of a stamped image; sponging over this area with ink will leave a halo effect:
The card above was my first try at this technique and I thought I could achieve a more obvious effect with a more liberal crayon application. I needed a birthday card for my mom, so I thought I'd try again with slight modifcations to Clean & Simple Stamping's Fall-To sketch #140. Here's the result:
I like the new card, but you know what? I like the original CAS version just as much!
