Hi there, crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon here and today I am thrilled to be sharing a project using the new Seasonal Distress Crayons. I have been lucky enough to play around with these crayons for the past few weeks and they have been an absolute joy to create with.
For my project today, I created a card using a piece of ephemera from the Tim Holtz Halloween Idea-ology Layers and combined it with Frosted Crystal to get a soft, beautiful effect that makes this card anything but Halloween. One of my favorite techniques for using Distress Crayons is coloring over Frosted Crystal. Let me show you how easy (and fun) it is to create!
Step 1: Gather your supplies. I used a piece of the Tim Holtz Halloween Idea-ology Layers, the new Distress Pearlescent Crayons, Distress Frosted Crystal and a Detailer Tip Waterbrush.
Step 2: Color over the image with your Distress Embossing Pen and emboss using Frosted Crystal. Heat it just until you see the image clearly. You can see the bumpy texture of the Frosted Crystal over the image. I left the border of the image untouched.
Step 3: Scribble your Pearlescent Distress Crayons onto the glass mat.
Step 4: Add some water to the crayon on your mat. I add just enough to make it a creamy consistency.
Step 5: Color in the image. I did one color at a time before moving onto the next.
Step 6: Add a second layer of color doing some shading and adding additional color (you can see that I added a bit of Flickering Candle and Hocus Pocus to my clouds and tiny dots of Flickering Candle to my stars). The addition of color really makes the image come alive.
Step 7: Ink the Clippings sticker with Black Soot Distress Ink and add to the ephemera layer using Distress Collage Medium.
Step 8: Add layer to a cardstock panel cut to 4 1/8 x 6 1/8 using mini fasteners. (You can also add adhesive to the back if you like).
Step 9: Add the layer you created to a card base measuring 4 ¼ x 6 ½ using foam tape.
Thanks for following along with my tutorial today. I hope you will try out this fun technique for yourself!
