Distress Crayon Background Card

Good morning friends, thank goodness it's Friday. Are you looking forward to the weekend too?

Today's card was an experiment for me, and I don't think it turned out too badly to be honest. 

We have had the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons since July, but haven't really used them before. So I thought I would try a simple watercolour background card.

I used three of the crayons from set 3, neutral/browns, on watercolour paper. I wet the paper first and then scribbled the crayons over the top and then brushed water over again with a water brush.

I repeated these steps a few times until I got the depth of colour I wanted and then dried it off with my heat gun. It's probably better to leave it to dry naturally but I'm not a patient crafter lol.

Once it was dry, I stamped a leaf image three times using Versamark ink, and then heat embossed it with Wow Metallic Brass embossing powder. Then I used a WPlus9 stamp set called That is All to stamp the sentiment using Black Memento ink. 

I cut the panel with a Tonic Studios Scalloped die, and then matted it on to brown card and a white card base.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you next week.
