Lovely As a Tree Crayon Resist

This is one of my favorite stamp sets because it is so versatile, but I must admit, I think I like doing Christmas cards with it the most.  This is the crayon resist technique, and it is a great way to create a simple effect.  Stamp you image on glossy cardstock with black StazOn, then with a white crayon, draw a line where you want the color to "resist".  On this card, it would be anywhere you want there to be snow.  Then roll your ink color (here it is Bashful Blue) over the image with a brayer.  It's impossible to goof this up because you keep rolling and changing directions until the color is even and smooth.  Finish the card with craft white ink for the greeting.
