Crayon Resist Technique

This card was created using the crayon resist technique and water colors.  I created the image some time ago and not with my stamps.  Half of the open line stamps were colored in with white crayon.  Squiggles were added with white crayon and a gold leaf pen.  Then a water color wash was added with various water colors.   The background piece was mounted onto red cardstock and then onto a folded black card.  Notches were punched in the corners and gold cording added (an old but effective embellishment).  The sentiment is from Flourishes and stamped on a Labels Four die cut from Spellbinders. 

Peak color in Northcentral Wisconsin along with temps in the 70s....doesn't get any better than this!  The bird feeders are alive with birds getting ready for migration or storing seeds for our long, cold winters.
