Distress Crayons Background

Hey everyone! I’m popping in to share a video tutorial I created for Simon Says Stamp, showcasing the new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons!

The Distress Crayons are new to me and I’m still figuring out how I like to use them best… during some of my experimenting I discovered some of the fun effects you can create with them and ended up creating this card:

Distress Crayon Background Technique_1

I walk you through creating the background in my video below.

For the sentiment I used a combination of the new Painted Friend die and also the Sketched Ranunculus stamp set; both of these are from the newest Simon Says Stamp My Favorite release! I also added some embellishing using the Holiday Shapes die set and red cardstock.

Be sure to watch the video to see the crayons in action; if you enjoy, please give the video a big “thumbs up”!

    I am going to pin this video for later. I have all these sets and have yet to use them. I experimented with them and for all the excitement everyone had from CHA, I am not that impressed. LOVE your card, though!!
