Crayon Resist; Batik Technique With Stamps; Wax Resist

Similar to the batik technique in fabric, using the Crayon Resist technique in your card making (also called wax resist) will give you really wow results every time. This card is one of my all-time favorites, and it was so easy to do.


In this card I used glossy cardstock, which I think gives the best results.

  • Stamp images on cardstock; allow time for the ink to dry before proceeding;
  • If you want to color in the image you can do it now;
  • Taking a white crayon, color in where you want the background to show through (white in this example to mimic snow). You can also apply the white crayon over any coloring you may have done that you don't want muddied when you sponge on additional color;
  • Sponge on one or more colors over entire card, or wherever you want to add additional color;
  • Using a tissue, wipe off excess color from your card, removing any crayon covering your colored-in images. The background will pop out at you!
  • Complete project as desired.
