Just a beautiful card and I love the texture you created with the embossing paste and the crayons and the stencil. The colors were just so pretty together; and that's one of the reasons I like to craft because I can play with the colors, whether they be paper or pencils or paint! I'm looking forward to trying the Gelatos soon.

Tiffany, thanks for a great video and very different techniques. I have never seen these products used before, and you showed some gret ideas to try.

Karen Conner

Who would have thought melting a crayon would be so beautiful!

Glenda Dopking

Oh Tiffany, I just wanted to reach in and touch your finished card! I am learning all kinds of things about my Gelatos that I got myself for Christmas and love the look you created with the spray onto the spackle. The melted crayon enamel dots I think are a wonderful addition and can't wait to see that in person! I wonder if you could make a bunch onto parchment paper and stick them to other projects. Well I am getting ahead of myself - I need tools and crayons first! Thanks ever so much for the great share!
