In my class last week, my lovely ladies learnt all about two step stamping, but I also showed them how to make their own designer papers.  Creating your own papers allows you to coordinate with the card stock and elements you are using at the time.  If you can't find a paper to match - you can make it yourself!  The card we made was an idea I got from the very talented Danielle Daws.  Danielle kindly put a tutorial up on the Just Add Ink site.  She has also provide a .pdf you can download for Free!  Thanks Danielle!

This is also another technique card using "Crayon Resist".  Where the card has remained white on the butterfly's wings is where I coloured using white crayon.  When I sponge over those areas with ink, they resist the ink and remain white.  My ladies all thought this was a fantastic project and a great way to make a single layer card look spectacular!

Stamps:  All A Flutter and a sentiment stamp
Card Stock: Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Inks: Staz On Black, Certainly Celery, So Saffron
Accessories: Adhesive, Ribbon, White Crayon, Sponges
