Melted Crayon Faux Enamel


This is for today's challenge going on over at Splitcoast, they have a link to a tutorial there in case you would like to try this. The hardest part for me was finding my iron since I never use it, for ironing clothes anyway.
I used glitter crayons with a little additional Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled in. Shave off crayons onto your cardtsock and then iron between sheets of wax paper. Stamped rose image onto transparency and then adhered to melted crayon piece with a thin layer of Crystal Effects. This was the step where I added a sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds. Bashful and Ballet Blue cardstocks with Finial Press embossing folder, blue taffeta ribbon, and Fifth Avenue Floral rose.
Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
