Art Attack

This card is one that evolved and took on a life of its own, I wanted to use the crayon from the simon says stamp set and I thought I'd seen a card using a mason jar to hold the crayons but i couldn't find it so I went my own way instead. Once I'd coloured the crayons in rainbow order I pulled out all my art stamps and discovered I have a few, and I liked the sentiment so that was sorted but the crayons looked a little lost so I scooped them up and thought I know the mason jar from lawn fawn. Originally this was going to be a completely white card but I decided to play with the abstract art set from MFT and I liked the look.

This may be hard to believe but this is my first set of spell binders nesties, I have several xcut and MFT. I bought them recently in the countryview crafts advent sale after a very good friend of mine told me what she got and I'm so glad she did as they were an absolute bargain.
