Wax resist watercolouring - Resist Technique

Hello everyone,
 


This week it was Birthday of this special lady who was my first boss's wife. Out of Academy to this new world of the Air Force, Shonima ma'am showered love upon me and now after almost 9 years the bond has only got stronger. She is not just a senior, she is a friend, a sister, a mother.. very special to me!

I was searching for wax resist technique on Google and found a crafty friend's Blog with the wax resist technique using crayon. So I decided I would try this.


I used a crayon to draw free hand flowers and used water colours to color them. For the sentiment I used a stamp I had bought from Itsy bitsy, stamped with memento ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I took a crystal and put as a dot on the i of the Birthday. 

I am happy that a quick card could be made with nothing but a crayon.. no need for going through my limited stamp stash :P

Hope you like it ma'am!
