CTMH Technique Blog Hop: Resisting Can Be Fun

For this month's CTMH technique blog hop, resistance is futile!  That's right, we're featuring lots of resist techniques!  (If you're already hopping then you've arrived from Darlys' blog.  From here, you'll visit Kirsten's blog next!)
For my card, I used two different resist techniques.  First, I used the waxed paper resist technique for the Crystal Blue background.  All you have to do is wad up some waxed paper and then place it on your card stock.  With a paper towel below the card stock and above the waxed paper, press the "sandwich" with a hot iron.  The wax will transfer to your card stock.  Then, sponge Crystal Blue ink on the background piece.
The second technique is the crayon resist technique.  Highlight parts of your stamped image with a white crayon, then sponge color over the image.  Here I used Pixie ink for the flower.  I think it needs more of the white crayon resist, but it's really hard to tell as you work.

Thanks for hopping by!  I know that you can't resist leaving a comment before you hop off to Kirsten's blog!  Thanks again for visiting!

Fun! I haven't tried these but the white crayon one sounds pretty easy.
