Wax Paper Poinsettia

Tim's Day #7 Tag uses glassine so I pulled out my wax paper.  I have some white glassine but decided to show how the wax paper will work in a similar fashion.  I used the alcohol inks on wax paper with the mixative and it turned out beautifully. I wanted the Memory Box Poinsettia to pop so I embossed with the white embossing powder and sprinkled a little white embossing powder over the surface to give it a snow embossed effect. I hand cut and layered the poinsettia.

The background includes the layers of stains and pearl mister to give the soft colors. (weathered wood, walnut stain, antique linen)

Then I stamped the vintage Christmas words (Memory Box) and the Vintage Music Records (Memory Box) using brown archival ink on the tag.

Have a wonderful day!

  14. I think I love you :) I looked at Tim's tag today and wondered what the heck glassine was and what I might have that was similar. I have heard of it before of course, but have never bought any. This is my favorite tag so far and I really want to try it. So, if you get a minute, could I get a little more info on how to use the wax paper - like what side do you stamp on? Thanks so much.
