Cards with Crayons

Some time ago I was asked to make two brightly coloured birthday cards - So I decided to use the my Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.

I chose to use set one as this has a lively collection of colour - Picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, twisted citron, mermaid lagoon and peacock feathers. I also used several Tim Holtz Layering Stencils. 

I applied a layer of white Gesso over the surface of my white card and allowed this to air dry. Then I scribbled with the crayons randomly over the gesso, working small areas of each colour. I placed each stencil where the pattern was required and rubbed some colour off using a damp cloth. 

Once this was dry, I trimmed each piece to fit my card blanks and mounted them onto black mount. I cut greetings and an image using dies and more black card. 

Dies by Memory Box and Crafters Companion.

Thanks for looking
