The Wonder of Crayola

CRAYOLA CRAYONS...


The sight of them still makes me nostalgic for my childhood.  Now I get the pleasure of coloring with my daughter. 


Last minute, I decided to make a card for the current Lawnscaping Challenge with the theme of back to school.   



I thought this would be the perfect card for my girl to give to her new teacher when school starts.  


I used the Color My World set from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped them in succession and colored them with my Copics.  (A great stress reliever for me by the way).  I cut a slit in my base cardstock and made the crayons pop out as if they were in the box.  I used some green washi on the edges to make it look like and actual crayola box.  Where I needed darker green, I just used multiple layers of it.  Finally I used my Lawn Fawn circle dies to round the top of the box.  Here is another view.

That's all, thanks for stopping by for this short post today.   And don't forget to embrace the fun things from your childhood!
