This week at JAI our challenge is to case Delys.
And this is the card I decided to case, isn’t it pretty!
My next club hostess asked if I would teach them how to make the ribbon flowers I do. So I thought I would case this card and use a ribbon flower rather than the punched flower as Delys has done.
When I was reading Delys’ description of the card, she said her background panel was done using a technique called Crayon Resist Technique. It didn’t look like what I think of as crayon resist. I thought of the Crayon Resist tutorial done by Danielle Daws for JAI here if you’d like to see it. So I decided to google the term to see if I could figure out how Delys had created her background.
I didn’t find it but I did find a technique called Crayon Rubbed Embossing that I had never seen before. I thought it looked very effective and so I decided to try it on my card instead but I have used the same embossing folder as Delys. There is a Splitcoaststampers tutorial by Lydia Fiedler here if you’d like to try it too. It is a very different way of using your embossing folders. I really like how it turned out and now I will be able to teach my club ladies 2 beautiful new techniques this month :)
