Sharing toys....

One of my fellow stampers left me with some of her toys to play with... some beautiful Lyra Aquacolour crayons.  I had forgotten how much I enjoyed colouring with crayons since Stampin' Up! retired their watercolour wonder crayons.  I find them so easy to get a beautiful contrast of colour with, as the wax keeps moving around with the water until you are happy with the result.
Here's a close up of 3 of the vases that I've coloured to show you the variations of colour that you can achieve with crayons....I've only used 1 red crayon to colour the vases.

The colour palette I've chosen comes from Colour Q challenge #310

And here's the card that I've made to enter into the challenge.  I didn't have any Kiwi Kiss cardstock as its been retired for a while, so I substituted Pear Pizzazz for the card base. 

Colours: Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Real Red (which I know isn't technically the challenge colour, but RR matched the crayon colour better LOL)
Stamps: Vivid Vases, Tin of Cards
Other: Shimmery White Cardstock, Red Glimmer Paper, Lyra Aquacolour crayons.
Happy Stamping...Manda xx
