Fish ATC


Last night I was making backgrounds trying a new technique, melted crayons, that I learned from a friend "seekingforart". I made a lot, and I mean a lot, of mud before I got some cards that I really liked. The background on this is done using two different crayon colors. The images are wallpaper and rub-ons. I then added some white dots using a white gel pen. For those that have never tried this method, it's a lot of fun and uses up crayons that the kids never seem to use! Here's a link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/melted_crayon_background/
Let me know how you think this turned out.
