Distress Crayon Resist on Glossy Cardstock + New Crayons from Tim Holtz!
Simon Says Stamp sent me the new Tim Holtz pearlescent Distress Crayon sets that have just been released and I have a fun project to share using them! Distress Crayons can be used in many different ways and techniques, but I have always found them to blend extremely well on treated surfaces. That inspired me to use Simon’s new White Glossy Cardstock and smudge the crayons together for a really unique background.
On the White Glossy Cardstock I applied a layer of Transparent Gloss Paste through Simon’s Layering Snowflakes stencil. Once the paste dried, I was able to scribble some of the pearlescent Distress Crayons over top. The glossy cardstock allowed the crayons to blend beautifully, and the paste snowflakes resist the color, giving a really dramatic look!
After making the background, I turned it into an edge-to-edge shaker card, filled with sequins and glitter. I added a silver die cut greeting from Simon’s Peace, Love, Hope, Joy die and a secondary greeting from the From Me Christmas sentiment strips.
The shaker looks amazing filled with glitter; it creates a sparkly snow effect on this particular card. I love how it looks like a blizzard! Check out the picture below to see it fully shaken!
