Crafty Girls Samples

Last week, we had a crafty girls get together and we did some wax resist and inked toppers for cards.

I saw the technique on Gina K's Stamp TV a couple of weeks ago and loved the idea, so thought we could have a play with it.This card was made with a digital stamp from Background Fairy. A piece of wax paper was embossed using an oriental lantern folder then laid on top of the image and pressed between newsprint with a hot iron. Distress ink applied over the wax resist image then cut with a nestie and layered on another card also cut with a nestie and embossed with the CB. The sentiment (from Tanda) was stamped then cut with a Spellbinders die.

Birthday card made using the wax resist technique. The backing layer was embossed with the same folder as that used to emboss the wax paper.

I am loving this technique.
It can produce some very interesting results.
