Buds Resist

Here's another card using Bud Basics but this time I've done a little resist. This is a very easy and quick technique to do. You need a few simple supplies - gloss cardstock, Stazon Black Ink, Daubers, 2 - 3 coordinating Classic Inkpads and last but by no means least a white crayon. Now this crayon is just one from your childrens crayon pack (or if you don't have children you can pick up a pack anywhere that sells colouring materials such as supermarket or variety stores). All other materials can be purchased through me.

First you stamp the outline images from Bud Basics onto the Gloss cardstock using Stazon Black. Now using the white crayon highlight some areas inside the stamped images. You can highlight as much or as little as you like. Experiment as that's what stamping is all about.

Next, using a dauber and the lightest of your Classic Inks rub over selected stamped images in a circular motion. Repeat with remaining colours going from lightest to darkest. You should now be done and can finish your card as required.

To finish my card I've layered my resist piece onto Apricot Appeal and then onto a piece of Certainly Celery which I have scalloped the bottom edge of using the Small Corner Rounder punch. This is then adhered to the main card. I've then tied some white organdy ribbon to the lower edge of the card. Next I've stamped 'may your day bloom with happiness' from the Level 1 Hostess set Blooming with Happiness (which is part one of the selections in my current promotion ending on 9th December 2007) and punched out using the large oval punch. This is them mounted over the ribbon using Stampin' Dimensionals.
