Memory Lane #7

Well, this should be the final Memory Lane card for a bit. I am REALLY hoping to get in some stamping time after this. I hope you have enjoyed taking this trip with me. Some of you may have seen these cards before (and you know who you are!) and some of you may be new to them, but either way, I hope you are inspired. Here's the last entry: This card is fun to do - it's just Crayon Resist.
HOW TO DO IT: Using glossy cardstock, I stamped the images in StazOn. Then I highlighted the flowers where I wanted with a white Crayola crayon. Then using sponge daubers, I dabbed color over the images. After the ink dried, I used a paper towel to buff the images clean of the waxy crayon. The crayon resists the ink and then you're left with white highlights! How fun!
Set: Both Way Blossoms
Colors: Orchid Opulence, Gable Green
Other: Sponge Daubers, white crayon, paper piercing tool, black journaling pen, paper towel

Hey Gina, this has been great fun! I love seeing some of your older work, and especially those I've already seen (and some I have!) but not for a long time. :-)
