"I had so much fun with this color embossing technique, using Marabu Art Crayons and embossing plates. I love how the color moves when water is added, this is a special feature of the art crayons. The results are playful and colorful and can be used so many different ways. I think the results would be great for card backgrounds, die-cutting, mixed media, collage, scrapbooking, and more. This technique, while a bit messy, is also very addicting."
