I have a super simple stamping technique that you can try as soon as you finish reading this post! Have you heard about crayon resist? In addition to your basic stamping supplies, all you will need is a white crayon. If you have kiddos at home, there’s a good chance that you have more than a few white crayons around the house, so go ahead and swipe one of theirs – they won’t notice!
To use this technique on your project, first you will need to stamp your image. If you are a Copic girl (or guy!), go ahead and use your markers to color in your image. You will be sponging over the image with dye ink, so decide what areas you want to remain white and fill them in. If you take a look at the example (link below), you will see that Beate outlined her flower with white crayon, and then use the blue dye ink to create a pretty watercolor effect. Also, if you colored your stamped picture with copics, be sure to color over those areas too. Any parts of your image colored with white crayon will resist the dye.
Now, use a sponge to rub your dye ink (Tim Holtz Distressed Inks are a good choice) over the entire surface of your image. To remove the ink from your crayon marking, buff the image using a dry paper towel. That’s all there is to it! If you have any questions, check out the link below for a great step by step tutorial…
