I created this card when I made the name tags for the ladies who attended the Hamilton Extravaganza. Like the name tags, it uses the For Everything stamp set, the Crayon-Resist technique and colours drawn from the Pink Flamingo DSP. In fact, a piece of that DSP is intricately cut out and adhered in front of the stamping create depth.

Crayon-Resist is fun and really easy. Stamp your outline image on a piece of Whisper White or glossy card. Use a white crayon and highlight any areas of the image that you don't want coloured (ie. to remain white). Sponge ink over the image and card (you can use one colour or many). Finally, use a clean sponge or a tissue to wipe any ink off the areas you applied the crayon to.
- QUICK TIP: Use your Craft and Rubber Scissors to cut your sponges into eight. This will make them into an easy to hold wedge. Plus, Stampin' Up! Stamping Sponges come in a pack of three, if you cut them you will have 24 sponges to use!
I love the For Everything stamp set. Not only does it lend itself really well to the Crayon-Resist technique (as you can see), it is also great for water colouring. You will find the For Everytihing stamp set in the Summer Mini, which is only available until the end of this month.
Here is another card that was inspired by Pink Flamingo DSP and the Extravaganza name tags. It too uses the For Everything stamp set and the Crayon-Resist technique.
