Ranger Ink Distress Crayons, Vellum and an Embossing Folder = Beautiful Results!

I've been experimenting with Ranger Distress Crayons and trying to come up with new ways to use them. I just love these crayons and I have found that no matter how I use them, the results are always amazing. Below is a short step-by-step tutorial on how to use these amazing crayons with an embossing folder on vellum. Enjoy!

First, chose an embossing folder of your choice and using your die cut machine with the proper sandwich for your folder, emboss the design onto vellum.  I used the Cuttlebug Rosa Embossing Folder.


I colored the flowers with the Mermaid Lagoon Distress Crayon by gently coloring over the flowers making sure to go slowly with little pressure so the pigment transfers to the flowers only.



To color the stems of the flowers, I used the Vintage Photo Distress Crayon and very, very gently colored over the stems.


Now it's time to color the leaves which I did using the Twisted Citron Distress Crayon.


Being that I used vellum, I placed my colored design over a piece of Neenah 80 lb. Solar White Card Stock and sewed the vellum panel onto the card stock with my sewing machine.


Next, I distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz Distresser.


For my final step in creating this panel, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


I couldn't have been happier with the results and now my panel is ready to be made into a card. I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial on how to make a beautiful card panel using Ranger Distress Crayons, vellum and an embossing folder.
