Crayon Resist

I had a moment to create this week, and took the opportunity o make a swap for the AOSA (About Oriental Art) Yahoo group- theme- dragonflies. This is a type of crayon resist.



And, I made a full sized card using the same technique:


 The SCS had a Try a New Technique challenge on Monday.  I have done a variation of this technique, but this one was much easier.....  I took white cardstock, placed it on an embossing folder with the impression part of the folder up. I ran a crayon over that and then rubbed/brayered on color.
You get a better impression on the card vs the ATC of what the embossing folder design is.
 The dragonflu is by Michael Strong, the sentiment MFP.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Very nice, Shel! I havent' done this technique in awhile - but yours is gorgeous! I love dragonflies. I always said if I ever got a tattoo, and I never would, LOL, that it would be a dragonfly in memory of my dad ♥
