I love the bold bright colours of this card. Not usually my colours but that is the great thing about Teaching & doing Techniques, it does get you right out of your comfort zone. Plus I like to try & create cards that I know the ladies in the class will like, as well as creating cards to suit each individual style.
For our card this arvo, we used the Techinque – Crayon Resist. It doesn’t matter how often I see this technique, I never seem to tire of it.
It is not my usual card, but I thought I would try & start using some of the colours that I don’t usually go for & this being one of the combinations that just happened. The tutorial may be found on this post. The layout of the card has been around for sometime, but I wanted something easy to start off the new year!
Base Card – Tempting Turquoise Cardstock – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Early Expresso Cardstock – 5 7/8″ x 2 3/4″ or 7cm x 15cm
Layer 2 – Glossy Cardstock – 5 7/8″ x 2 1/2″ or 7cm x 6cm
I randomly stamped my images onto the Glossy Cardstock using Staz-On Ink & allowed to dry.
Using a White Wax Crayon, I randomly coloured around stamped areas that I wanted to keep white. I then grabbed my sponge, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Yellow & Regal Rose Inks, & sponged all over the card until such time I had all the white coloured & I was happy with the result. Once it was all dry, I buffed using a tissue.
I adhered the Glossy Card to the piece of Early Expresso Cardstock & tied a piece of Ribbon around the end. I stamped my greeting onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Early Expresso Ink, punched it out with my Decorative Label Punch. As I wanted to add a small border around the white, I punched 2 pieces of Early Expresso Cardstock with the same punch & cut both these pieces in half, one crossway & the other downways. I adhered 3 of the 4 pieces to the greeting piece.
I then adhered the top of the greeting to the back of the stamped flower piece prior to adhering to the card. I applied 3 Rhinestones to the bottom of the card.
