I wrote the first SCS tutorials back in 2003, can you believe it? Well…they look like it. So I am trying to slowly but surely to redo them.
Here is my new take on the Crayon Resist technique. For this sample I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored it with Copic Markers (YG23, YG25, YR65, YR68). Then white Crayon was added over the colored image and a bit to the side of it.
The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Aruba Core’dinations Cardstock folded in half. Next a 3 1/2″ x 4 5/8″ piece of 7Gypsies Capri Patterned Paper was taped on a 3 3/4″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. Both layers were stitched together (yes, I love that I have my sewing machine out of the basement, in my stamp area now).
The 1 5/8″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Kiwi Kiss cardstock was stamped with Floral Edge in Shabby Shutter Distress ink. The edges were distressed and sponged. A 1″ x 3 1/2″ strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock was cut and embossed with Eyelet Borderabilities, taped underneath the Kiwi Layer and stitched to it. White Organdy Ribbon from SU was tied to the right edge. A Prima Flower was taped over the ribbon with dimensionals. It has a Recollection brad in it’s center.
The main image is from Unity’s Gratitude = Joy stamp set. It was stamped and colored, then cut out with Label Four Nestabilities. It was layered on a size bigger label cut out of Chocolate Chip. That layer had been embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. The sentiment is also from Gratitude = Joy. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink, punched out with the 1″ circle punch, sponged with Shabby Shutter Distress ink, layered on a 1 1/4″ Chocolate Chip circle and the edges were paper pierced.
Here is a video for the visual learner:
Have a wonderful weekend! We are having friends visiting from Illinois. It will be great!
