A lot of the materials used in this are retired or non-SU, but I thought it was best to put it up here on the blog anyway to show you what is possible. Even for beginners. I have decided that I need to invest in a lot more paper, so I am taking advantage of the May special of buying three selected DSP and receiving another on FREE. Get in quick as this finishes tomorrow!
Card: Old Olive, Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery and Pink Pirrouhette
Ink: Purely Pomegranate (retired)
DSP: Berry Bliss (retired)
Stamp Sets: In the Spotlight (retired) and Polka Dot Punches (retired)
Embellishments: Kaiser paper flowers and Bella cardboard chips

Well here I am with some cards made using the crayon resist technique. These were my first attempts and unfortunately I didn't have all the correct equipment. The Ocean Commotion Fish was stamped using Basic Black and when I went over it with my ink, it picked up the black and smudged this around it. All in all, although it isn't what I expected it didn't turn out too bad.
Card: Tango Tangerine, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Blue Bayou (retired)
Stamp Sets: Ocean Commotion
Embellishments: Light Blue Chunky Sprinkles
Extras: White crayon - used one of my daughters and it didn't resist too well.

Here we are with a very different card to ones I have made in the past. This card was whipped up very quickly, when I found out a friend had slipped off into hospital without telling anyone and was coming home that day. No pressure there.
It was a bit garish, but I was trying to use colours that I knew my friend likes, even if they aren't my favourites.
The following ingredients were used to make this card:
Card: Tangerine Tango, Ruby Red,
Ink: Staz on Black, Versamark
Watercolour crayons: Rich Regals
Ribbon: Baja Breeze 1" double stitched grosgrain, Purely Pomegranate 3/8" double stitched ribbon (retired)
Stamp sets: Pun Fun, Circle Circus
Embellishments: Tombow and Light Blue Chunky Sprinkles

Card: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouhette, Basic Grey
Ink: Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze
Ribbon: Baja Breeze 1" Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
Stamp Sets: Priceless and Fun and Fast Notes
Extras: Cuttlebug Mesh Embossing Folder - I would have used the Polka Dot background stamp if I owned it - just another thing to add to my wishlist
