So, I finally took my distress crayons out to play with them. They are so creamy - I love applying them to paper. The current challenge at Less is More is
It's Recipe week and we're looking for
1 or more balloons on your project
I knew what I would do. Using some 96 lb bristol paper, I blended a few colours of distress crayons together - seedless preserves, picked raspberry, twisted citron, peacock feathers, spiced marmalade and festive berries. I used a water brush (with very little water) to blend the colours a bit. I let the paper dry and then die cut balloons using WPlus9 Whole Lotta Happy dies and MFT DIe-Namics Birthday Wishes & Balloons dies. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler stamp set. I drew in the balloons strings with a black fine marker. Here's my card
I love how the distress crayons and water brush created a mottled effect. I thought that the card needed "something else", so I added a thin border of patterned striped paper.
