Pop of Color

Today I'm sharing another card using the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. This time I used them to create a background for my big flower on watercolor paper. First I colored the paper with several shades of blue, and painted over it with water. After it was dry I added a bit of crayon to the flower tips and used my finger to blend it into the petals. The last step (for creating these flowers) was to stamp a crackle background over the top. 

I created my background for this card by cutting 3/4 inch wide strips of white and black cardstock and alternating them down the front. I die cut my sentiment 3 times and glued them all together for more dimension.

Supplies and Tools:
Tim Holtz Distress Crayons (Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass), Watercolor Paper, Crackle Background Stamp (Stampin' Up), Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink, Baker's Twine, Hello Doily Die Set (Sizzix), Sequins, Pearl, Washi Tape, Blue Gem, Martha Stewart border punch

What a beautiful flower, Esther! I haven't given in to trying the crayons, but you've inspired me to use what I have to make some more floral cards!
