I love school supplies. I still get a rush every August when school supply sales are announced. New paper waiting to be filled with ideas. Pencils begging to be sharpened. And the best - a new box of crayons. Nothing fancy, just a basic box of 24 with primary colors, secondary colors and a few tertiary thrown in for good measure. Oh, yeah!
Card (folded) - I chose a light blue-grey card, 5" x 5"
White card stock
Green card stock
Fiskars® Lever Punch - small butterfly
Fiskars® Lever Punch - medium scalloped circle
Scissors (I used my Wescott Titanium Bonded® pair.)
Select a range of light colors. Mine were on the warm side, so yellows, pinks, oranges, and reds. Color in a section of the white card stock. I chose to color randomly, but you can do stripes if you wish.
Once you have colored a section of the paper, go over it with a darker tone. I chose a deep blue-violet.
I liked letting a little color peak through the surface.
Using a dull pencil, scratch away the dark surface to let the colors below be seen.
A charming card reminiscent of encaustic painting with nearly limitless color possibilites!
