I have not stamped in two days! My whole weekend was busy with rehearsal, and Arwen has been refusing to take naps for mommy. So, mommy's stamping time has been non-existent lately. I didn't finish Beate's sketch challenge until today! So, I thought I'd combine Beate's sketch challenge and today's Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS, Crayon Resist. I LOVED Beate's sketch, so I had to try it out with my new Little Lady stamp set by Papertrey Ink. You all KNEW I HAD to get this set, right? LOL I just replenished my stock of Regal Rose and Certainly Celery cardstock too, so I thought I'd go with the watermelon-like colors. As far as using the Crayon Resist technique, it's very subtle, but before stamping the bodies of the ladybugs on glossy cardstock, I colored the "spots" (that were already stamped in Jet Black StazOn) with a white crayon. Once I stamped the bodies, I rubbed over them with a paper towel, and the rose or celery ink came off of the spots leaving the white rings around the black spots. I think the piercing on this card makes it so dainty. It reminds me of the decor in my mother's home. For a finishing touch, I added Stardust Stickles to the centers of the flower on the background. They add just enough sparkle in real life. Thanks for visiting today. . .I really appreciate it! Hope you have a wonderful day!
