A Touch of Copper

Hi everyone, technique card today using waxed lunch wrap.  This Waxed Resist technique is fun to do with an embossing folder, waxed lunch wrap, Bigshot, iron, Whisper White cardstock, ink and a sponge.

I had forgotten all about this technique, but at a recent Stamp Camp we made a card using this technique.  This is a card that I have designed for my June Class.

Cut a piece of waxed lunch wrap a little larger than your card front. Put this in the embossing folder of your choice, I used "Lovely Lace", and run it through the Bigshot.  Carefully remove the embossed wax lunch wrap and sandwich between two pieces of Whisper White cardstock cut to size for your card front.  Sandwich this between copy paper and using a hot iron (without steam) iron over the sandwich that you have just created until the wax has melted and transferred to the cardstock.  You will get a positive piece and a negative piece of waxed Whisper White, so you can make two cards or keep a piece for later use.  Sponge ink of your choice over the Whisper White cardstock and the design will appear resisting the ink where the wax has transferred.  I used Crumb Cake on my card. 

I heat embossed Copper on Whisper White for the flowers from the "Grateful Bunch" stamp set and then coloured them using Peekaboo Peach ink and the Wink of Stella pen.  The matching "Blossom Bunch" punch was used to cut them out.

The stem was heat embossed with Copper on Early Espresso cardstock and fussy cut out.  The sentiment from the "Crazy About You" stamp set was also heat embossed with Copper on Early Espresso cardstock and hand cut out.   The card base is Crumb Cake with a mat of Peekaboo Peach.

You can get all your supplies for this project from me.
