Tim Holtz® Distress Crayons Stenciled Card

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a card I created with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons, mixed media paper, and a stencil.

I started with a stencil from the BoBunny Cascade Stickable Stencils pack, some mixed media paper, and some a few Tim Holtz® Distress Crayons from the Set #2 pack.

I placed the stencil over the mixed media paper panel.

I colored over stencil with the crayons, graduating the color from dark to light and back to dark.

I rubbed in the color onto the paper with my finger, blending each color into the next.

I removed the stencil to reveal a stunningly colorful background.

I trimmed the panel to fit on a square card front and created a tag to hang at the corner of the panel.

I kept the embellishments minimal so the background would be the main focus of the card.

    Really cute card! Now I have a new product to try! I learn so much from the Weekly Scrapper! Thanks for giving such great presentations!

    I just bought some Distress Crayons and want to try this technique with a stencil. It looks easy enough. But how do I clean my stencil afterward? My stencil is very detailed & delicate. I don’t want to scrub too much, worried that I may tear the stencil.

      Hi Kelly, The stencil I used was a Stickable Stencil by BoBunny. I put the stencil on the plastic sheet it came on, added just a touch of dish washing liquid, and gently ran it under warm warm and washed it by hand. The Distress Crayons are water-reactive, so the crayon is easily removed with water. Hope that helps!

      Yes, they are very similar. Here is a great answer from scraptime.ca …. “The are both a similar texture. They are both activated by water. You can rub both of them dry onto your project. However, the Faber-Castel Gelatos are suppose to be permanent once dry (even though that didn’t quite happen in the video), whereas the Distress Crayons can always be reactivated by water. From there it is the design of the product and the colours available.” …. http://scraptime.ca/blogpage/?p=11878
