Lydia's got us using crayons for this week's Mix-Ability challenge. I used a new-to-me PSX stamp and sentiments I designed for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Bridge of Hope set). There are several layers of watercolor here, using inks and markers.
When the coloring was done, I laid the panel over an embossing folder, and rubbed the white crayon over the top - it left a subtle waxy pattern, and lightened up the roses just a bit.
I stamped the hymn lyrics around the flowers and in between layers of watercolor - Memento ink has an interesting quality on watercolor paper when it gets wet that usually frustrates me but worked for me this time. I stamped with a light pink that greyed just a little as it soaked down in - kind of a whispery watermark effect.

That is absolutely gorgeous!!! I can't really see the crayon but I can see how it would make the roses a bit lighter. The watermark Hymn is so cool!!! Gotta try that sometime with the light pink...did you stamp right over your image or mask it off? I love your sentiment and the roses are just so beautious!
