Playing with crayons Doing Crayon Resist

Hi all,
Not much new here in my Blogger land, have not been well the last week and not doing much creating or on line. So will just post one of the last cards I made and I really enjoyed making the card, brought back memories of a kid and coloring with Crayons!!
Anyway, I used my Hero Arts 3 Daisy stamp, it is a fairly large stamp, but love it, used Memento ink black and stamped it on white cardstock, used a WHITE crayon on the petal part of the flower and colored in the petals, then I used a copic marker to color stem of the flower and then used a blending tool (time holtz's) and used dried marigold and shabby shutters, and vintage photo distress inks and blended all around the flower to get desired coloring. Now what I got is not exactly what I wanted, was going to play around some more but was tired. When I was done distressing with the distress inks, took a tissue and wiped off all the excess ink on the flower part and the white on the crayon buffs up so nice and shiny, it gives such a great look, more so in person than on the picture, Try it you will like it!! Going to try in a different way with a different color in the future some time, think it looks great.

Thanks for looking and be back soon when I am feeling a bit better.

Ta Ta for now.
