In a Flash


Over at the PaperArtsy blog Helen is back again and she's been playing with the Crunchy Waxed Kraft Paper.  She's showcased loads of techniques which you can find here.

I decided to use the very first one by painting it with nougat and irish cream fresco paints and I scrunched it up.  I then used another of the techniques by rubbing the surface with walnut distress ink and inking it off on another piece of card.

I'd also received my new (to me) T!m stamp plates so I had a play with those too. I stamped the light bulb 3 times, the last time onto acetate and painted the back with nougat fresco paint.  The heart is die cut from the metal card and stamped in black stazon with PA mini #44 script, as is the crown.  The bottom piece of crunchy waxed kraft paper is scrunched up and coloured with onyxite treasure gold.
