Distress Crayons and Texture by Nikki Acton


Hi everyone! Today I have a card I made using Distress Crayons over a textured surface and also to colour the stamped images. Here is what I did:

Firstly I added some texture paste through Tim Holtz Stripes layering stencil on white card and allowed it to dry. I then took my Distress Crayons and started adding colour in stripes and blending the colours with a babywipe and my finger to work in the colour.

On a piece of card I added some gesso before stamping the butterfly images from Finnabair’s ‘Dream On’ stamp set with archival ink. I then added colour using the crayons and blended with my fingers and a little water. I selected a saying from Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker book and also coloured with the same colours.

I mounted my coloured base on some black card (having torn the base away) and added the saying and butterflies.

See you next week!
