Happy Valentine’s Day!
I have two crayon resist technique cards to share today using stamps from Simply Stamps!
I started with watercolor paper and then drew some simple hearts onto the paper with a white crayon. I used watercolors to create a wash over the hearts. Once dry I wiped the excess paint from the hearts with a damp paper towel.
When my background was completely dry I stamped the I LOVE YOU Hashtag Rubber Stamp from Simply Stamps onto my cards with black ink (Raven Detail ink from Brutus Monroe).
Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy technique.
I’m hosting the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoast this week! The challenge is to use a heart in your project along with at least two mediums. I used Stamps from Impression Obsession, inks, watercolor and a little white acrylic paint on my project. You can see the challenge HERE.
I started by stamping my flower (). I used my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) to stamp the image repeatedly adding inks to the stamp until I got a good blend. Did you notice the new My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners? I love them!!!
Next I added my heart () and some loose watercoloring around the flower. I stamped my heart directly on top of my flower. I added some details to the flower with white acrylic paint.
I stamped the sentiment with black ink. The My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners came in especially handy here because My paper was a little warped from the watercoloring It held the center down very firmly so I could stamp my sentiment without magnets sticking together.. nice!
After I was done with this step I misted the back side of the paper lightly with water and let it dry with a couple heavy books on top to get it smooth again before assembling my card.
