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.
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

(I chose this card by Allison Cope I flipped her layout around and enlarged those black and white stripes!)

You can never go wrong with blue if you ask me. hee hee This is lovely and I like the added scalloped edge. Thanks for playing in our On the Case challenge this month.
Your card is terrific!
Wow goregous flower, love the colors, I like the extra you gave to the tips and that crackle over it is just perfect, such pretty layering!
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!
