This is my "New To Me" card, this is an old technique but new to me, crayon/wax resist. The white parts of the card I colored in with a white crayon to resist the distress inks I used to color my card.
The cardstock is from Bazzill, Tim Holtz distress inks, white crayon
and my organza ribbon is from my stash.
This was a fun and simple card, I will have to try it again soon.
