For Technique Lover's Challenge - melted crayons - a new one for me! (and much easier than I'd imagined)
Used three crayons - gold, "macaroni and cheese" (that is the actual crayon color name! It's apricot appeal-ish), and a pumpkin orange. In real life, the main image shimmers from the metallic crayon and is just much nicer than the scan.
Used encore gold sponged on with plastic wrap on the pumpkin pie layer.

This card is so awesome! Do you have any pointers on melting the crayons? I keep trying, but it doesen't turn out quite right. Did you do it in spots or lines or what? Did you put the iron down on the CS or rub the CS on the iron? Anything you could tell me would be a great help. I just love to make my own backgrounds and this one would be fabulous if I could learn to do it. Thanks, Sharon, [Jill's Mom}
