CAS Mixed Media Card


Hello friends ,Today I have a birthday card to share with you all.The dahlia flower and leaves are digis from SNS,nothing new on design front !
Can you guess the coloring medium ?


The humble WAX CRAYONS !! I was surprised to find so many shades of single color in my crayon stash.I had 5 variations for blue and 4 for green ! If you are wondering how I blended these colors,heat is the secret.Heating causes the wax to melt and get absorbed into paper and you are free to layer colors on top.I heated between each layer of color and I could even use color pencils for shadows and highlights.



For the background ,I applied texture paste through dots stencil (Craft Tangles) and layered a golden glitter circle beneath it.A pp strip to add some more color and finished of with heat embossed sentiment strip(W & W).

I had almost added few sequins but resisted as the card already had too much ;) What do you think of it ?
