New supplies

My Distress Crayons arrived today ... and had to give them a quick try. Started by drawing a square and smooshing it with my finger. Oh My! Is that smooth or what ?! What amazing texture. I wanted to just keep on playing with them. And then to mix things up a bit, I used a Copic C1 to make some shadows on the squares and leaves.

I drew on the edge of strip of cardstock and smooched again so I would have exact matching paper for the border.

New stamps too ... the Roses for You set from Simon Says Stamp.  And as I put my stamps in the Pockets and make my own labelling cardboard, I cut up the card that comes with the stamps. The grey zigzag can be used in so many ways as it is so subtle. I painted the leaves by putting a wet paintbrush directly to the crayon to get the colour.

Here is a close-up.

I will enter this to the ...

... and Darnell's NBUS Challenge #6
