Who Can Resist?

Are you like me when you see a new technique? I get ideas popping and love to try new things. A while back Dina Kowal posted a tutorial that splitcoast featured using a technique that was new to me, pencil resist. Instead of heat embossing or using some other form of water based ink-resistant media like crayon, you use waxy colored pencils to color the area you wish to resist the ink you then put on in the 2nd step. My 10yo DD loves leopard print and bling so I was thinking of her when I made this, but it isn't quite right for her. Guess I'll just have to try again....maybe in pink!
