Bandana Technique

I just couldn't get the photos to show how truly cute these layouts turned out! The colors are there but POP more in real life.  The technique is called Bandana Technique and is simple to do! All you need are stamps, ink, white crayon, sponge, dry embossing stylus and our Pearl Paint. After that you embellish as you like! Stamp the images then use the white crayon accent. You won't be able to see the crayon very well on the white cs unless you tip it a bit to catch the light. Next using the same ink you stamped with sponge on the ink and the crayon resists the ink while coloring all the rest. Use the stylus to make "dip dots" to accent the images. 
Top layout colors: Cotton Candy with Chocolate base.
Bottom layout colors: Smoothie with Black base.
On the top layout I also dyed one of our Paper Flowers with the Cotton Candy reinker. The center is from Irresistables--Pizzazz, also colored with Cotton Candy ink. Journaling was done with a white gel pen.



  1. Your bandana technique turned out really well with the crayon. And Hazel certainly looks adorable.

  2. Awesome technique! Definitely something I would like to try! And what a super effect on your pages! Your pictures are absolutely darling and all that pink...WOW! I love it! So glad to have you playing along with Heart 2 Heart challenges!
