Wax Paper Resist

April 23rd, 2008 · 6 Comments

Wax Paper Resist

For this card I again was inspired by Kristina Werner’s Color Inspiration challenge. This time I also managed to combine it with today’s Demo Challenge on splitcoaststampers.com, which was to use the Wax Paper Resist technique. You can find a great tutorial for this technique on SCS.

Per Kristina’s challenge, the colors I used were (a little bit of) Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Sahara Sand. I used Pumpkin Pie for the wax resist, and also to stamp the Sanded background on the Sahara Sand card stock. The birthday saying was stamped on Whisper White paper and punched out with the key tag punch. I layered two photo corners on top of each other and attached them to the sentiment with a So Saffron brad. Linen thread was wrapped around the wax resist piece, and also threaded through the three square So Saffron buttons in the lower right corner.

Thanks for stopping by!

    1) looks great 2) you can use regular cardstock, in place of glossy, for the wax paper resist? TFS, Amy.
