Wax Resist

Been having a bit of fun revisiting old techniques this week. This is the wax paper resist technique where you crumble up wax paper and un crumble and iron it over glossy cardstock and then ink away! Here's a few cards I've come up with:




This is all one layer, I just masked off the kids to ink the frame.

Hi - I haven't heard of this technique before. I assume you remove the waxed paper and it has left a coating on the paper underneath, which you then ink. I really must have ago.

Seems like we have all been tagged. It was interesting to read your facts. Do hope your kidney match is fine. Will be thinking of you and your family for this one.
