Peanutbutter Moon and Crayon Resist

Peanutbutter Moon is the name for the day. YAY Their designs are definitely whimsical!!! Today I have used their stamps for the crayon resist technique. These are the stamps one lucky person will win. You know the drill... just leave a comment in this section before midnight CA time for your chance to win.

There are many different resist techniques. This is one you may remember from elementary school or Easter eggs with the kids. It's simple and will work with any color crayon. I have used a white crayon on white cardstock.
Simply stamp your image using your ink of choice.
Taking your white crayon color in the parts of the image that you want to resist the ink when you sponge over it.

Next take your sponge dauber, ink it up, and bounce, bounce, bounce. :)Lastly take a paper towel and wipe across chalked parts to rub off the ink.

Ta-Da!
