Catching up on my June ATCs for my Aussie East-West Swappers Groups
Today the technique is: Wax Resist Background and requires a wax roll which can be found alongside parchment and baking paper in the kitchen aisle of your grocery store.
In addition to the wax roll, I also decided to use my embossing folders to add pattern to the wax roll.
These I sent through my Sizzix Big Shot to create a lovely pattern ...
Which can be ironed on sandwiched in between 2 pieces of paper (wax side down).
Next, I used my Distress Inks to add color and then used tissue paper to rub away any excess ink which is resisted by the wax pattern.
The colors I used are:
- Fossilised Amber
- Victorian Velvet
- Abandoned Coral
- Tumbled Glass
For my Fossilised Amber backgrounds, I created a bee theme and used a hexagon Alterations die.
For my Victorian Velvet backgrounds, I created a tea theme using doilies, crepe paper, tulle and ribbon.
I also used the High Tea die-cut elements by Kaisercraft.
For my Tumbled Glass backgrounds, I used the trellis Alteration Die along with crepe paper and metallic cord.
I also used the Golden Grove Tea die-cut elements by Kaisercraft.
For my Abandoned Coral backgrounds, I extended my short front with this pretty lace and then layered elements like the trellis die-cut, heshian texture and metallic cord.
I also used dimensional stickers from my local dollar store.
On each of my ATCs, I used Tim Holtz sticker clippings to add appropriate sentiments.
The process video for how I made these ATCs can be found HERE.
