Crayon Background

When I came across this video by Split Coast Stampers on how to use an iron and crayons to create a background I knew I had to try it. The only thing is I don't have a craft iron or a travel iron so I used a flat iron (you know, the ones for your hair) that I don't use any more. I love how it turned out and I can't wait to play around with it some more. I may even buy a craft iron!

The grass is three shades of green and the sky is yellow, orange and cerulean. I used a sheer/satin combo orange ribbon by Michael's along with brown grosgrain near the bottom. The tree is cut from Bloom Lite and mounted with pop dots. The brown paper is Bazzill and the orange is DCWV.
