Yellow, Red and Brown

What a wonderful colour combination for the Gingersnap Creation Colour challenge, so warm and welcoming! And a perfect opportunity to play with some wax crayons and the iron. As I was not so sure how to go about I found this tutorial. For this technique you need wax paper and unfortunately I have only brown wax paper which would not show the colours so well. So I experimented with greaseproof paper which naturally doesn't give the same result as the papers do not stick together. When opening up the 'crayon sandwich', the melted crayons displayed a nice texture and colour combo
It is even possible to use dies to cut out shapes which I straight away used to create a little card for the colour challenge. I kept the layout relatively simple because I wanted to make the little cut-out leave the focal point
The base for the card is textured off-white card layered with Kraftcard and patterend papers from Jillibean Soup and Crate paper. The stamped word is from Elzybells, the button twine from the Ribbon Girl and the wooden pearls from my stash.
And as I had quite a bit of melted crayon paper I could not resist to make a couple more of these little cards whereby they are very similar but still each one is slightly different
Hope you join us for this wonderful challenge. Hop over to the Gingersnap blog for more fabulous inspiration, Petra.
