Crayon & Sticker Resist Watercolor Valentine Cards

Crayon & Sticker Resist 
Watercolor Valentine Cards

The Lil Divas wanted to make special Valentine's Day cards for their teachers and their Dad. I've been wanting to try crayon resist painting with them for some time. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try something new & make our cards at the same time. 


I introduced the Lil Divas to the concept of crayon resist by preparing a few secret valentine messages for them to uncover.


I used white crayon to write hidden messages on plain white paper that I drew a heart on. 


The Lil Divas had fun uncovering what I had written for them.



and they were excited to try it themselves.

 

We've done tape resist watercolor painting in the past so the Lil Divas had the idea to use some of our Valentine themed stickers on their cards as well. 



I think they turned out lovely & the Lil Divas are super excited to give them to their intended recipients on Valentine's Day.

  9. Did you just use regular white computer paper? Also, did the stickers tear the paper when you pulled them up?

    1. Josie we used card stock. The stickers take some paper off - peel gently and it's barely noticeable. It depends on the sticker too. Some peeled off much easier than others.
