Weathered Wax Resist Challenge

I am preparing for my 2 classes this week over at Stamp Scrap and More. (Link on my Favorites tab). I am teaching a wax paper class on Wednesday(2 spots open) and Sunday(Class Full). As I was working on putting my kits together I decided I should use some of the supplies to do a few of the challenges going on at 2 Peas Winterfest and Hero Arts weekly blog challenge.

This card actually fits in with three challenges...

This was fun as it uses some of the wax paper resist technique, masking, glimmer mist...


Recipe:

  1. Cut out 2 5" circle from plain white cardstock.
  2. Crumple plain wax paper and spread flat.
  3. Heat iron on medium setting.
  4. Place wax paper between the 2 circles.
  5. Iron for 1 minute flip the 2 pieces of cardstock with the wax paper in between and iron other side for 1 minute.
  6. Using yellow glimmer mist spray on the wax resist white cardstock circles and dab off excess with paper towel.
  7. Place mask on dry yellow cardstock. Sponge on weathered wood and broken china over entire surface.
  8. Place wax resist circle after sponging between two pieces of white cardstock and iron again for 2 minutes to remove the wax.
  9. Stamp flowers and sentiment using Stazon Solvent Ink.
  10. Pierce holes around the edge of the card. (I used a template I just purchased)
  11. Tie twine. (Didn't have any so I used needlepoint thread.)
  12. Stamp butterflies on scraps on other circle and cut out. Color in using color pencils (Blue and green)
  13. Attach butterflies using pop dots.
