Crayon Resist

1) Stamp your image in Basic Black Classic ink or StazOn ink on Glossy White card stock.122007-fig1

2) Color areas you want to remain white--or that you want different from your background color--using a Whisper White or other light-colored Watercolor Wonder Crayon.

3) Use a brayer or sponge daubers to cover the entire surface of the card stock with ink.


4) Wipe off excess ink with a tissue.



Give the ink time to dry before coloring your image with your crayon; otherwise the lines of your image may smudge.

After Step 4, you can color over the masked area with Stampin' Write markers or using watercolor tools.

Stamping with Markers

Directions: Online_training_121

1) Use a Stampin' Write marker to apply color to the stamp. Ink only the part of the image you need.

2) Add other colors if desired.

3) Breathe onto the inked image to remoisten the ink before stamping onto paper.


For a more muted, watercolor look, spray a fine mist of water on the stamp instead of breathing on it.
