Waxed Embossing Technique for Crafter's Companion


Step 1.  Attach a 5.75 square mat of black cardstock to a 6 x 6 card base.

Step 2.  Emboss a 5.5 square piece of black cardstock using the Indian Ornate Screen embossing folder. Leave the paper in the folder.

Step 3. Use a candle to rub over the raised areas, letting the folder act as a support for the paper.  This will create a resist.

Step 4.  Use a sponge dauber to apply Radiant Neon Ink to the embossed paper.

Step 5.  Use a dry paper towel to rub away the excess ink, thus removing the ink from the waxed areas. Dot centers of pattern with Amplify if desired or substitute adhesive pearls.

Step 6.  Mount the panel to the card base.

Step 7.  Stamp the sentiment with watermark ink and heat emboss with black powder.  Trim to fit on  patterned paper strip as shown and add ribbon.

Step 8. Mount another piece of patterned paper with black mat that has been scalloped border punched. Place on card as shown.

Step 9.  Stamp the butterfly image with the Memento Ink.  Color with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

Step 10.  Cut the image with scissors.  Slightly bend the wings up and glue down just the butterfly body to finish the card.
