I created this artist trading card for Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.  The call was cinema and I thought it would be fun to create an ATC inspired by one of my favorite films.  I'm a big Quentin Tarantino fan and I love the movie Reservoir Dogs.  I took inspiration from this movie poster:

I've always wanted to create something with melted crayons.  After playing with both my heat gun and hairdryer, I found that my preferred melting tool was the hairdryer.  The heat gun was too hot and almost instantly turned the crayons into pools of wax, which wasn't the look I was going for.  The Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon was the perfect finishing embellishment.
