As the summer sun begins to rise and the temps heat up, what better way to beat the heat than crafting! Join us all this week for a special collaboration with Penny Black. We're sharing fun projects here on our blog using Penny Black stamps AND you'll find projects from the Penny Black designers on their blog featuring our Paper Crafter Crayons™ and Double Scoop® Gelatos® . We want you to join in the fun, too, so don't miss the giveaway details at the end of this post.
Hey there creatives Rita Barakat ! I was so super excited for this blog hop I got carried away and got to work using the Promenade stencil from Penny Black! Before I knew it I was finished and I forgot that I was supposed to use the Paper Crafter Crayons™ so I did a second project below!
I used pink Gelatos® Double Scoops® mixed with water and stamped it with a Penny Black chalkboard birthday stamp. I traced the shape, added about a half an inch onto a DCWV cork sheet.
I added burlap and a little gesso on the edges too.
Here is a close up of the Paper Crafter Crayons™. I know what you're thinking, "Can't I do this with regular crayons?" Well technically you can but what you can't see in pictures is how this hardens when it dries. It is not oily and there is no residue like you would get with crayons. The surface is slick, textured and solid! It won't rub off. People will say how did you do that? Or they will think you bought it that way! Pretty fun stuff!
