The Snuggle is Real

This is a card I made to welcome a new baby.  The stamps are from Reverse Confetti and the idea to recess the baby onesies is from Nina-Marie Trapani.  I went with non-traditional baby colors, using purple, teal and green Ranger Archival Inks for the stamping and Wild Honey Distress Ink for that golden glow.

Creative Chemistry 103: Distress Crayon Watercolor Resist

Creative Chemistry 103 explored another way to use Distress Crayons as a resist.  The interesting thing is that one of the ways you can apply the crayons is as watercolor paint but after the crayons are dry, they can function as a resist against Distress Ink so you can ink right over the image and add water as you would to many Distress Ink techniques without it reacting to the image.
