Fall crafting is in full swing! Follow along as Cheiron Brandon works her magic with the latest Distress Crayons, Halloween Set 5 and Set 6, to create stunning fall notecards that are a burst of beautiful color and texture. 

Instructions

Hello there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon and I have a new tutorial for you featuring the newest colors of seasonal Distress Crayons. Today I am using the Halloween color sets #5 and #6 to create a trio of notecards perfect for saying thank you during the fall season. They would be great to make a whole set of these for a hostess gift too!

Step 1: Gather your supplies. I used Distress Watercolor Cardstock, Distress Texture Paste Opaque, Distress Collage Medium, Distress Crayons Halloween Set #5 and #6, Distress Oxides in Villainous Potion, Crackling Campfire and Ground Espresso, the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Berry Leaves and Note Quote Stamps.

Step 2: Cut 3 panels of Distress Watercolor Cardstock to 3 ¼ x 4 ¾ and apply Distress Texture Paste using a Palette Knife.

Step 3: Use your palette knife to remove any paste hanging over the sides of the panels. Let the panels dry completely.

Step 4: Once your texture paste is dry, apply a thin layer of Distress Collage Medium over all of the panels and let dry completely. This will allow the crayons to blend more easily over the surface.

Step 5: Color your panels by adding color using the Distress Crayon. I like to blend them with my finger, I also use a baby wipe nearby to dampen my finger and make the color move even more around the paper.

Step 6: Continue building layers and blending until you achieve your desired look. I tried to use all of the colors to get different looks.
