Butterfly Brilliance – Crayon Resist Technique

Butterfly Brilliance – Crayon Resist Technique


Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set and Butterfly Wings Dies are a “go to” bundle! I created this Crayon Resist Technique cards for Colour INKspirations Challenge #111.

Welcome to my blog. I created this card for Colour INKspirations Challenge #111. Sadly, I have taken so long to upload my image that the challenge is now finished. But I wanted you to see where I got the inspiration for this card.

This inspiration pic was chosen by Nicole Wilson … what a gorgeous, calming colour scheme to work with.

Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set

Butterfly Brilliance CI111

I created this card in my weekly Whimsy Wednesday Creative Facebook Live on facebook. Click the link below to see the recording in my Facebook Group. The card features the Crayon Resist Technique, and was inspired by Riikka Kovasin, a mixed media artist in Finland!

Here are a couple more images using this colour scheme … I love the elegance of the Soft Succulent, Crumb Cake and Evening Evergreen, along with a touch of Vanilla and gold.

The butterfly is stamped with Stazon ink and watercoloured using the two green ink colours.

The crayons are just some very old Crayola crayons I have had laying around for a long while, and because I couldn’t find my white crayon, I used a white wax crayon I picked up at a craft store somewhere along the line. The brand is Leviathan (made in Australia by Garnet Manufacturing). As long as your crayons are wax based, they will resist the ink.

Let’s try that in a different colour-way

I created the same card in a brighter colour-way, using Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Just Jade for the background and to watercolour the butterfly.

Which one is your favourite?
