New Sets + New Techniques!

This card features a brand new Hostess Level 3 set which will be in the new catalog! The set is called "Time Well Spent" and includes 12 double-lined images: flowers, a stem/leaf, a butterfly, heart, and 2 cute greetings. I made this card at my friend Melissa's house at a demonstrator meeting. She's the person who I signed up under when I became a demonstrator this past February. Anyway, she instructed us on how to use the wax crayon resist technique. It turned out really cool and was very simple! Give it a try:
Wax Crayon Resist Technique
Stamp double-lined image in black onto glossy cardstock
Use white crayon to color in spaces where you do not want color to show up
Dab a sponge onto colored ink pad and rub over entire piece of glossy cardstock
Use a tissue to wipe off white spaces (where you colored w/the crayon)
The small flower at the bottom of the card is stamped in black and the center is colored in using a white gel pen.
Card Recipe
Stamps: Time Well Spent
Cardstock: Purely Pomegranite, Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink, Glossy white
