Birthday Wishes


Todays card was supposed to be a full standard A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") But on the journey of creating it morphed into a much smaller card, that what's happens sometimes, but that only means I have a piece of background to use on some other projects.

Sometimes inspirations come from new goodies that come in the mail, this week the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons finally came and as I've been watching a whole bunch of videos on how to use them I knew I needed to give them a try on this project. Those crayons was also the inspiration of my colour scheme.

The techniques behind getting this result is quite easy and here is a video on how I did step by step.

Tim Holtz Distress Crayons have smudge time, so when you use them work quick or in small parts. To make them move later add some water but then they loose a little of their intensity. And because water together with pressure will make the crayon move again I would seal the top with some multi media matt or some Collage Medium if I would send this card through the mail.


  1. I love the green and yellow colors in the card. Yellow is my favorite color so I love this card!

  2. Love your beautiful card...the colors are gorgeous.
