PaperArtsy challenge : Wax

Over at PaperArtsy the current challenge is Wax.
I hunted down my (almost forgotten) Portfolio Crayons for a play.

I used heavy smoothy card, and scribbled the crayons on the surface. I smooshed them with my finger to blend them, then zapped it with a heat gun to make the wax absorb into the card.
I used Tim Holtz Cargo stencil and more crayon, which I zapped (the crayon not the stencil) to make it bubble and raise a bit.
After it had dried I stamped from HP1110, and MN44 with snowflake Fresco Paint
Finally I used red crayon to colour a piece of card and stamped the words.


  1. Lovely blended effect for the background and the lettering stencil came out looking cool!

  2. Lovely. Portfolios are wonderful, love the vibrant colour and how you've blended it. Perfect with the stamping.

  3. Fabulous and beautiful Portfolios colours. xx

  4. Portfolios sound more and more exciting as I hop along the PA challenge entries...Beautiful tag!

  5. I have portfolio crayons too, haven't played with them for a while. I'll have to get them out, I love what you've made. Great colours and texture! A really cool card :)
