Coloring Embossed texture with Crafter Crayons and Gelatos
A textured cardstock is great for creating some visual effects on it. So to start with I took a cardstock and embossed it with my BigShot and embossing folder
Then I took Paper Carfter Crayons™ in White and Silver and traced the embossed parts. These crayons are are highly-pigmented wax crayons, and I decided to experiment with melting the traced areas. I used my heat gun and some parts that were colored with white became invisible but the silver parts were still visible.
I started coloring the surface with Gelatos®, and what I have noticed - those parts colored with Crayons didn't hold the color on the textured parts, but well laid down on the area around . This made the texture to pop up and it was great.
After that I misted some parts with the water and heated it immediately. The colored parts with the Gelatos® became brighter.
I distresses the lace with Gelatos and water, just rubbing it between the fingers.
and here you are:
can you see this shimmer of Metallic Gelatos and Silver Crayons? Just love it
Gelatos: Squid Ink, Blood Orange, Metallic Melon

I started scrapping my kid's photos but at the present moment I design for several manufacturers worldwide and teach classes.
when I came to the scrappy world I created mostly the cards, but now I am addicted to LOs with mixed media techniques and altered art. And many of my creations are published in magazines all over the world.
