Hi all! Cathy's WT397 for today is to use crayons on our card. How fun is that? I bought SU's Wonder crayons several yrs ago but until today, I have never used them. If I ever did know how to use them, I'd long forgotten, and I figured either way, I'd probably make a mess with them. So ... I took them out, watched three U-Tube tutorials, decided which technique to try, decided on a stamp, and this is what I made. It's NOT perfect, but it was great FUN (like crayons and coloring books always were) to make and the mix of EIGHT colors turned out so vibrant! Anyway ... I'm so glad Cathy gave us this particular challenge. If not, I have a feeling that several yrs from now, those crayons would have still been in that drawer! Heehee!
Stamps: Local King Rubber, MFT
Paper: Strathmore water color paper, Paper Studio card base, K&Co
Ink: Stazon, Ranger di, PTI
Accessories: SU Wonder crayons + sponge for distressing, PTI die, MFT die, American Crafts lace, Zig black pen (to outline some of the leaves), Didon mounting tape, Scor-tape
THANKS MUCH for looking! :)

Are you serious? You've never used crayons on your cards before? This card is amazing, very colorful-no pun intended there, (hee hee) and it stands out in the gallery today! I think you're onto something and should definitely take out those crayons more often~
Make the most of today, because tomorrow holds no guarantees!
