Butterflies and Crayons
I took a piece of neutral colored designer paper with a butterfly pattern and placed it OVER TOP of my 6 x 6 template and simply rubbed on different colors of crayons. It gives a really subtle look doesn't it? It took a little bit of playing to find the right designer paper and colors of crayons to get the desired effect but I think this works very well.
As I was concerned that the crayon would rub off, I simply heat set it with my heat gun and then lightly burnished it with a paper towel.
The sentiment was stamped and part of the butterfly rhinestone embellishment added, the bottom corners were rounded and done! Very simple!
Here's what I used:
Paper: SU! River Rock, SU! Concord Crush and Basic Grey Perhaps
Ink: SU! Concord Crush
Stamps: Verve Beautiful You
All the other stuff: The Crafters Workshop Mini Chicken Wire template; Zva Creative PEB-03CB-109, SU! Watercolor Wonder crayons in Almost Amethyst, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery; corner rounder punch, heat gun, paper towel, ATG
