    I’m still trying to work out exactly how you did this Delys. But it will be worth thinking about because the end result is stunning! Love the combined effect of embossing and colour variations.

    hi. i just found you on P interest. could you please send me info on how to use the crayon resist method? i have never heard of it before. i am thrilled to be one of your followers. you are very creative. thanks so much for your help. i make cards that are sent to our soldiers that are in afghanistan/iraq and have made over 7,000 so i am always looking for new ideas and things that are not too expensive, and crayons are it. thanks again. sharon dymerski

      Hi Sharon, Thanks for commenting and following..Didnt realise I hadnt shown how to do this so have popped up the tutorial in my free tutorial sections..any questions just ask!

        thanks so much. it seems kinda confusing, but i’ll give it a try. so you put the crayon only on the embossed part of the card and then put ink all over the inside of the folder (same side as you used to emboss) is that right? you have such great ideas. i shall spend hours perusing your blog/site. sharon

    sorry its confusing, its hard to describe. You emboss your cs as normal, open up the embossing folder but dont move or take the embossed cs out. Colour all the raised bits of the embossed cs and brayer ink over the open debossed side of the folder. Pop back into your embossing machine and voila all done. Its important not to move the cs after its been embossed so thats why I use post it notes or washi tape to hold it in place, while I colour. I used watercolour pastel crayons. A white crayon looks stunning on a dark cs too.

      you are so kind to keep replying. one last question: can i use regular children’s crayons like the crayola brand? i don’t have watercolor pastel crayons. thanks a million for all of your help. sharon
