Resistance is...

I apologise in advance if this post is a bit... off. I didn't get around to preparing this earlier and I've just finished watching the LOST finale and I'm a bit... well "Jack, we are in shock" isn't a bad summation. Anyway... to the card!

This card was inspired by more bedding! I saw this Sheridan quilt cover in the Myer catalogue the other week and just had to make a card based on it. My method with this card was a little haphazard... living with an electrician does not mean you will be free from electricity related issues. I have asked for some time now to have a double powerpoint put in behind the desk so I can plug my heat gun in, and I am still waiting. Of course I could go out to the kitchen and heat emboss there, but you do it once and they say you can do it that way every time. Don't tempt fate! So, no emboss resist. I decided to give crayon resist a go on this one but I ended up rushing it a bit and didn't get everywhere I wanted to. Still, I can live with it (especially after seeing the sheets in the flesh - not as pretty as the catty pic!) and I do like how the card came out. I've used the Simple Delights Simply Sent kit stamps for most of this card, as well as once stamp from Baroque Motifs (there's no stopping it wink). I stamped the circular and square motifs on the gloss white card using So Saffron ink, let them dry thoroughly then went over it with a white wax crayon (the kids haven't noticed it missing). I then brayered over the whole piece with Soft Sky ink, buffed off the wax, trimmed it to size and mounted it to my So Saffron card base. I stamped the small flower along a piece of Close To Cocoa using VersaMark, dotted some 2-Way glue on it then sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I attached this to the card front then stamped the sentiment using So Saffron ink.

Wow, Carol! I thought you had used DSP but no it is your own paper! You have done such a fab job of the crayon resist! Love it! :) K
