Normally I would not use black card for a card base for a Valentine card. However, I thought the black would make pop the other colors. The scallop panel was air brushed using Gold Medal Crayola glitter marker. The panel the heart is on was done with crayons and alcohol blending solution on a scrap of watercolor paper. I stamped the heart on a scrap of card stock and used white embossing ink and Recollection Raspberry Pearl embossing powder. The white embossing ink gave the powder a softer pink color. Then I air brushed with glitter blue and silver. I used a pink Glaze pen drawing just on the edge of the heart over a gold paint pen after I cut it out. I love the metallic look it gave to the edge. The sentiment is one I printed on my label maker playing around with the different functions. I couldn't figure out how to add the apostrophe and didn't think to add the s for Valentine's.
I will have to keep this coloring technique in mind. I really like how it looks. It really softens the look of crayons. Later on I want to see if it is possible to stamp directly on a background done this way. I think this technique would be great using metallic crayons. I'm going to see if I can find some somewhere.
Now that I know that alcohol blending solution will work with crayons I want to see if it will work with oil pastels as well as with color pencils. You know me I always like to experiment.
Tomorrow the workman will be back so I will be back in my "playroom" playing and doing more sorting through and organizing things. I'm hoping I'll find my Gelly Roll pens which have gone AWOL. I probably threw them in a box which I put in the closet when I was trying to get the room straightened up enough to pass inspection. :-( At least I know where the clear glitter ones are. :-)
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
