I had a play this afternoon with my Crayola Stix crayons and acrylic paper.
I scribbled lots of colour onto the paper then blended with my fingers. It looked very bright so I gave it a coat of white Gesso and when it was dry did some stencilling with Milled Lavender DI for the background .
Then using a Jofy set I stamped the tree sideways to make branches and added the birdhouse. I extended the branches at the bottom with a fine marker then coloured with Promarkers.
The bird was stamped onto a scrap of white card and watercoloured with a bit of clear sparkle pen on top then cut him out and stuck him to the branch with foam pads.
To finish I put purple crayon round the edge and again rubbed with my finger. The heart is punched from white card and also has a bit of sparkle pen on top of the milled lavender DI.
I think my card might have been more suitable for Halloween, don't you?
