Distress Crayons

20170424_205242Sometimes cards i make make me say WOW!  This is one of them.  I am so happy with how this experiment turned out.  I  smooshed my distress crayons around on water color paper (the rough side) and then spritzed with water and blended a bit with my finger.  Then I took a stencil and used a babywipe through the stencil.  With another stencil i used the crayon direct  onto the stencil and it left the cool little raised edges. (the pink dots)  For the MFT border die I used my Big Shot and and a silicone pad and embossed the edge instead of cutting it.  Before doing that i inked the edges of the cutting side with a green ink to help the piercing stand out.  Another stencil for the sun rays.  All the stencils were Tim Holtz.  I added a Wink Of Stella water colored butterfly and some clear sequins.  oooo, ahhhh, it’s just like fireworks.
