Crayon Resist

Boy its been a while, I will have to try harder in future. For today I wanted to show you a card I did at a recent workshop. My hostess was looking for a male card that used a brayer and maybe some crayon resist. My hostess also sent some ideas from cards she found on Splitcoaststampers but they used Set Sail which retired in March. Luckily one of my friends, (thanks Jackie) recently purchased Seaworthy and it was sooooo new she still hadn't trimmed and mounted it yet. I promised to mount it for her if I could use it.

So this is what I managed to come up with for this challenge.

What do you think? I think I covered all parts of my challenge and this card was well received by my workshop guest.

So how this card was done. Main card is Taken with Teal and stamped with Sanded Background stamp in Versamark. I have a strip of Soft Sky which I scrunched up, flatened out and then ran the Taken with Teal inkpad over the creases. A piece of Black twine is knoted around this piece.

The sail boat is from Sea Worthy set and is stamped on Gloss card with Staz On Black ink. I then took a white crayon (I raided Sarah's crayons for the white crayon) and applied it to the sail and the waves. Any colour cheap wax crayon will work for this technique.

I then brayed Soft Sky ink onto the card and then Taken with Teal to the bottom to give the illusion of sea and sky. With a tissue, I buffed the image to remove any last crayon. The edges are textured with a fingernail and mounted onto Night of Navy card.

To finish off the Happy Birthday is from Stem Sayings and punched out with a Word Window punch.

I have another Crayon Resist to show you but my Camera ran out of charge so hopeful tommorrow I will get a photo of it.
