A big congrats to Barb, the newest Featured Stamper (FS386) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery and I chose THIS card to case. I kept the oval and similar colors but I used a vertical layout and made a melted crayon background (a cousin of encaustic wax) for the WT485 challenge, instead of using designer paper.
This was the first time I’ve tried the melted crayon background and I loved playing around with it. I made quite a few…it was hard to stop! Since I really like how this background turned out, I kept everything else simple…a greeting on a white frame and some die cuts. I don’t think I’ve had this much fun with crayons in a long time!
