Crayon Resist

I have been making Father's Day cards and they have been such a challenge for me! I guess after all the frills of Mother's Day cards these cards seem so plain. Anyway, at the Two Peas in a Bucket stamping board, we have been discussing old techniques, so I decided to use the crayon resist technique on this card. I used torn paper to mask where I wanted color on my card. I then made a collage using different stamps and then took a crayon to highlight areas. You can see white on the areas I highlighted. You can use any color crayon because the wax is what resists the ink color. I then brayered over the collaged piece using the Waterfall Big and Juicy ink pad. When this dried well I took a kleenex and rubbed over the colored piece to rub off the wax so that the white areas would show up.
