Sweet Stamps- Wax Paper Resist-Monthly Challenge

The Sweet Stamps Monthly Challenge is Wax Paper Resist.

  I had fun playing with this challenge. For this first card, I embossed the wax paper in the Dots embossing folder. I ironed it on glossy paper after stamping the Aster floral image. I colored the image with Ranger Distress markers- same colors as the ink plus green Shabby Shutters.  I added the Pink Ranger Distress Inks with a sponge.

 On my 2nd card, I tried something different. I cut out a Joy Crafts die and also crumpled up a 'strip' of wax paper. I placed both on the glossy cardstock and ironed them on after stamping the image. I sponged on Purple Distress inks. How fun, huh?  I added some glitz with a Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen and Rhinestones colored with a Copic marker.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Love both of your designs. Two unique uses of the wax resist technique. I love the added stitching and large ribbon on the flower card and how you used the die cuts on the second card.
