Birthday Star Distress Crayons Card

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! Today, I have another card...just one more to go...that I made for the Ranger Ink Booth at Creativation this year, made Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. I so enjoyed making this, and it was a pretty fast make. Hope you like it! Oh...I apologize for the large watermarks on the tutorial photos...didn't realize I did it and saved it before it was too late.
I covered two pieces of card size black cardstock with Matte Distress Glaze Medium.
Using my finger, I covered both cards with several colors of Distress Crayon. I placed various stencils on top of the cards, and used a damp rag to remove the stenciled images I wanted. I love this technique!
I die cut the stars from the extra piece to use as embellishment, and have a few for another project.
I outlined some of the stenciled images with white pen, and then used the cap of White Picket Fence along with the paint to make circles on the card and stars.
I used the crayons to draw stripes on some Crinkle Ribbon, and misted it with water. Then I rubbed and crinkled it up, and let it dry.
I mounted the star on white cardstock, misted  it with Brushed Pewter Mica Spray, added the sentiment, and tied on the ribbon, before sewing around the card. Then I adhered the card on more white cardstock. I added the metal star to the ribbon to finish it up.
I have one more card to show you from the show. Until then, thank you so much for looking!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
