I’m sharing another New Year card today! I just love creating and giving these cards!
For this one, I pulled out my new metallic distress crayons! I was very pleasantly surprised by just how metallic they are – the Tarnished Brass is definitely my favourite one at the moment!
To create my background, I coated some cardstock with Distress Collage Medium to make it easier to blend the crayons. I had originally planned to use the Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Brushed Pewter crayons but I preferred the look when I substituted the Tarnished Brass for the Brushed Pewter! Anyway, once I finished blending, I cut the background with a Taylored Expressions Background die – as soon as I saw this die, it just screamed ‘New Year celebration’ to me and I was relieved to see how it turned out. Look at that shine from the metallic crayon!
Anyway, I stuck it to a base card and then stamped a Hero Arts sentiment using distress oxide ink (in Peacock Feathers).
I’m entering this into the current Timeout Challenge (new beginnings) and I’m adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday challenge as I’m using two new items – the metallic distress crayons and the background die!
Thanks for stopping by!
