Monday Challenge-Feb 29 2016

The Monday Challenge this week is to leap into the unknown.  Since I just got Tim Holtz Distress Crayons in the mail, it seemed like an invitation to try them.

The crayons are super creamy which I loved, but they weren’t well suited to my small detail stamp set because of their snub nose.  Now they worked perfectly when I just put the pigment on the craft sheet and then used the colour with a water brush, but goodness knows I already have several watercolour mediums that do that well.

I liked the brillant colours that resulted on the card but do feel that the crayons full potential would be better utilized on a different type of project. I am thinking that I would like to test out the crayons on the background to a  scrapbook layout.  I am not enamoured with mixed media that much, so I need to find an alternative for which the crayons can become my “go to” product.  I didn’t bring any stencils to Arizona so I think I will make a couple using my cutter and try the crayons with that.

Here is the fun Easter card I made.


Supplies: Tim Holtz Distress Crayons, Bo Bunny Eggcellent Stamp, Carta Bella Spring patterned paper,  Papertrey Ink Wet Paint die,  Ranger black and white enamel accents, Taylored Expressions If Dogs Could Talk stamp set (to add faces to the eggs)Stickles, Crackerjack Palace eyes, Simon Says stamp card base, Scor tape, Xyron adhesive
