Love is in the Air

Another Simple Doodles card using my home made crayon background and the new Heart Bear digi stamp. I made this for a Birthday card for a little girl. The sketch is from the Just Christmas and Birthdays Wed. challenge. To make the background paper I grated color crayons onto wax paper (put the wax paper onto a firm pad of newspaper) when I had all my colors grated I placed my sheet of cardstock on top, put a old piece of a sheet on top and then ironed everything. Make sure you use a hot iron, no steam. Look at your paper and if it needs more color grate more crayons and repeat the ironing. It works pretty easy. I am not sure if this is the directions given on other sites I lost the web sites and went with my own idea on how to complete this project. Hope you have fun trying it out, Janet
