My next challenge with Joann @ Jo's Scrap Shack was to create an inspirational card using the wax paper resist technique.
I am late in posting as we had some computer glitches here.
I had not used this technique previously so my first attempt didn't work as planned (I used a pigment ink instead of a dye ink) but was still good enough to use in a different project.
Having no gloss card stock for my background I used photo paper. The ink I used was Close to my Heart "Bubblegum". I then inked the edges with my Memento "Tuxedo Black".
I stamped my image & sentiment which arrived in the mail this week from The Unity Stamp Company. It is by illustrator Phyllis Harris, from the set "your wings exist". I colored the image with copics and pieced her dress using a scrap of purple patterned paper.
I matted the sentiment and image using black cardstock, elevating the sentiment using foam tape.
Keep tuned for our next challenge a Valentine tag.
