Sweet Stamps- Resist



  This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are using a 'Resist' technique.



  I used a wax paper resist technique- here is a closer look at the background:

  I used wax paper between the snowflake die and the paper cut out, and used it as my wax paper resist. I stamped the smaller snowflake in blue to accent the resist snowflake. I painted Creative Inspiration Paint Blue Ice on the snowflake so it is sparkly and added it with a dimensional  to the card- and added a blue gem to the center of it.
