Love-Resist-and Candy!!!

I have been MIA, but am back to creating today!  I am in LOVE with trying new things....
  Well, it is not really a new thing...wax paper resist has been around for a long time.... I decided to add a piece of wax paper next to the Cheery Lynn Italian die when I die cut it, and then used it as my resist pattern. I ironed the waxy Italian die cut onto white glossy cardstock, and then used SU Regal Rose and Rose Red inks.  I think the edge pattern in the die looks like hearts....I finally got around to using the Sweet Stamps Elegant Filagree Oval stamp...wait- you do not see an elegant Filagree Oval...that is because I just used the floral image that comes inside the frame.... I colored the flower with Rose Red, Regal Rose and Wild Wasabi markers- you can see the pattern from the wax paper resist through the flower and the leaves.
  I had a die that did not impress in the center- DO NOT throw those imperfect cuts out- see the Rt hand border- I used mine as a border edge.......   The sentiment is Great Impressions. I used Pink Pirouette SU reinker to die the seam binding to pink.  The button is from my Mom's button box.

I'll be honest, I've been tempted many times to purchase the Technique Junkie tutorials, but always hesitate because 1) I suspect the tuts are already on the web, and 2) I am on a fixed income and don't want to discover I'm right, and will, therefore, have wasted my money. So, it's a lot of "What ifs." My point being, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this CD so I could see if it would, indeed, be worth it to purchase the rest of them. So, thanks so much for the chance to win this!

Your card, by the way, is just lovely. Truly. Lovely.

Ms. Petersen said...
