Crayon Fun


This is the second technique for this month.  I got to buy a brand new box of crayons for this one!  This technique does work with our Watercolor Wonder Crayons, but the effect is a little different.  Instead of white, it leaves a little color, but the color over the crayon is much lighter than the background.  It's kind of a neat look, but I wanted this one to be a true white.

I wanted to use Peach Parfait for this, so it was easy to pick the other colors to go with it.  Peack Parfait and Cajun Craze really go well together, and I thought the Daffodil Delight would brighten it up a bit. 

I'm excited about some of the new promotions Stampin' Up! will be offering this spring!  You'll be able to preview some new products from the upcoming Idea Book & Catalog, but I'll give you more details later.

It's really late, and I need to get everything together for the technique class tomorrow, so I'll sign off.  thanks for stopping by!

    The camera does not do this card justice. The colors are fabulous and the technique is fun and easy. Technique class today was great and now I have one of these all my very own. Thanks Buffy. Sandy
