Decided to do another ATC for Simon Says Monday challenge. This one is inspired by a technique I learned over the weekend with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. So I started with Tim Holtz Collage Medium, made a quick layer of that and dried it. Then I used the Distress Crayons and colored in circles, yellow in the middle, then orange and finally pink. Then using my finger i worked from the middle out blending it all together. 

I then took a Mandala stencil and laid it over the crayon, used a blending tool dampened with water and brushed it back and forth over the surface, taking off the crayon through the stencil. I loved what I was left with.

 Then using Tim Holtz new Stamp Platform I got my words on there right where I wanted them. After that I was in such a flow I forgot to take step by step pictures lol. I used narrow washi tape in my three crayon colors and put it on layer by layer. Then I used a random yellow paper flower, an orange bead and a pink flower brad to make my flower have dimension. Stuck it on, and voila! Bright and fun ATC.
