White Crayon Technique BSU032118

Hi Stampers!

Welcome back to another Broker Stampers Unite challenge. This weeks technique is to use an embossing folder with a white crayon.

Now you may be thinking that sounds difficult.  Nope!  Ok, if you count getting the wrapper off the crayon I can see why you'd think that.  

Once you finish getting that darn paper off the crayon, place your white (or vanilla) card stock on the embossing folder.  You want the paper on top of the raised side of the embossing folder.  With the side of your crayon, rub over the card stock.  Go over it several times so you have a nice thick layer of crayon.  

Select the colors to paint your background.  I used three: Dapper Denim,  Night of Navy and Island Indigo. I squeezed the ink pad so there was ink on the cover then used my aqua-painter to paint with.  Paint lightly so the paper doesn't pill. 

My inspiration for this card was snow (unfortunately).  In Maine we are on our 3rd Nor' Easter storm in two weeks. There is another storm coming next week. Yesterday/today's storm has brought almost 2 feet of snow and it hasn't stopped yet.

Let's see what Carol and Terri have created this week.  Carols' blog is here.  Terri's blog is here.  Join us on Facebook here.

Until next time,
