Hello Lovely card!

Last month I got one of the hottest products in the craft market, Tim Holtz new Distress Crayons for Ranger. I couldn't wait to get a play, so here you have the results.

Aside from the Distress Crayons, I used my Big Shot machine, Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Tribal Borders #660502Craft Asylum Tribal Adventure Clear Stamp Set, Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3PK - Winter Wishes
#660882, as well as black pigment ink, clear embossing powder and smooth white card.

I started by applying a generous stripe of each of the rainbow colours on to a white smooth card, making sure that the colours overlapped.

Using a broad water brush loaded with plain water, I brushed over the lines to blend them.

Using the straight trim I die cut five strips.

I then glue them to the card.

The intensity of the the colours of the crayons stands out against the white card.

I die cut the sentiment, then pressed the ink pad across and emboss it using clear embossing powder and heat embossed it using a heat gun. I did two layers of embossing powder to create a really glossy three dimensional effect.
Then I stamped the messages from the tribal stamped set and emboss them using clear embossing powder. Then I cut around them and add them to the card using foam pads.

I hope you like it!
