Darkroom Door Resist Technique

Hello, Lisa Hoel here. It's not too late you know!! You can still participate in the Birthday Blog Hop (through April 8th) for a chance to win the grand prize and other prizes drawn from each designer's blog comments. Go to the main hop post on the blog here to get started!

Today I have a spring card to share with you made with one of the wonderful Darkroom Door Collage Stamps and their resist crayon.

I was inspired by Lindsay Weirich's video about the resist technique she used for the Collage Stamps and crayon. (Watch it and you'll get some great tips!) After stamping the image onto watercolor paper with archival ink, I watercolored the butterflies yellow and the ferns green. I added the resist crayon over the areas I had painted on the ferns and over some parts of the yellow painted wings on the butterflies. I went back over the butterflies with orange paint and the crayon preserved yellow portions by resisting the orange.

The crayons are softer than standard 'school' crayons and cover well.

I added some more crayon over the butterflies again and as a final step, I painted a wash of blue over the whole thing for the background. It was really easy with the resist protecting the ferns and butterflies. I went right over the top and the colors didn't get muddied. Fun and easy!
