Happy Thanksgiving week Monday! It’s a short week for my kids at school, made even shorter by various things — Turkey Trot tomorrow, which my daughter is very much looking forward to, and an early dismissal on Wednesday. To add to the mix, we are up for a winter storm on Wednesday. We do not travel for Thanksgiving and no one travels to us, but my husband does commute and I do hope this isn’t a pain on Wednesday. Well, any more of a pain than what it already is! Hopefully those traveling can get out early and beat the storm.
In honor of the incoming snow, I’ll share my crayon resist card from HYCCT1424. Again, this is one of those techniques I had seen many times before, but had never attempted myself.
This turned out really quite lovely. Very subtle! So I used my Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder for the resist. I don’t have a brayer so I used an ink dauber in Pastel Blue from Hero Arts instead. I kept the rest very CAS to allow that resist and subtle color to show through. I added in a Pierced Snowflake with a blue brad for the center and a sheer organza ribbon, which I love. The card base is Nightshift Blue.
