I used glossy cardstock but you can use plain white. You stamp your image in black, then color as you like. Once it is colored, you go over any parts of the image that you would like highlighted or to have the color pop! In my card, I colored over the entire flower image and traced over the stems as well. Next, I chose a color for the background and sponged over the entire image and around the image. You then "buff" the image with a paper towel! Voila! The wax in the crayon resists the ink that you spread over the image and you get bright colors in your flowers and a cool white highlight around the entire flower. This is a 3 x 3 card that I thought would make a great gift tag! Go dig out that unused, lonely white crayon and have some fun with it!
