Yesterday I received the Crayola Slick Stix that I ordered after being fascinated by how Kathy used them with great enthusiasm. So off I went to have a play.
This is my first project onto a piece of acrylic paper. I used three of the crayons to colour the paper then blended with a damp babywipe - as per Kathy's instructions.
Then I covered it with white gesso to knock back the colour and when dry added a little more blue and purple. I did as Kathy often does and used the baby wipe through a stencil to lift off some of the colour.
However when I removed the stencil and saw that I'd not removed enough colour I decided to use a white Sharpie pen to draw swirls to try to highlight the lighter areas.
I have added a hessian flower that I bought a while ago from Poundland and stamped the Hobby Arts sentiment underneath.
My card looked top heavy so I cut off the front, trimmed it down and added the twine then mounted my topper onto an A6 card.
I'll be popping this down the road to a friend later on today in with a box of cards I've made for her fund raising event on Saturday which is for our local Hospice.
