Crayon Rubbed Embossing

What a fun, fun technique challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.  Bust out your crayons and an embossing folder for a fun and unique technique to create one of a kind papers. 

For this challenge card I used the new Woodgrain TIEF from the Holiday Seasons Catalog along with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  To bring it all together I added a crinkly ruffle of First Edition DSP, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, a Petite Pair greeting, and a scrap of Victoria Crochet Ribbon.


For this technique:
1.  Cut off the wrapper on a white crayon
2.  Place a piece of white glossy paper glossy side up on a textured impressions embossing folder (TIEF) and rub with the crayon.
3.  Use a brayer or sponge to add ink to the glossy paper and watch magic happen.

  3. This is sooo cool! I think I am going have to go to the dollar store and get me some crayons as I don't think I have any white ones. Is this fun or what? I now have a real reason to buy crayons for myself!
