Distress Crayons + Background Stamp Giveaway

Hi everyone! How's your week been? Are you preparing from Christmas already? I'm starting to work on Christmas cards which I'm excited to share with you soon. But right now, I'm preparing some mini thank you cards :) 

P.S : I have a mini giveaway on my instagram :)

All you need in your favourite Thanks / Danke die or stamp, a background stamp, watercolour papers and versamark. Oh and sequins for some sparkles :) 

I've started by roughly embossed the background on to the watercolour papers in white but only the bottom half to create some "texture" 

Next, I used Distress Crayons to add some colours. They are easy to use! If you like more demos on Distress Crayons, let me know :) 

Use my wet paintbrush to move the colours around. Keep some light and dark areas :) 

Add your sentiments and embellishments and you'll have a bunch of thank you cards ready to give away when you need to :)
