The theme at SaWo this week is to make something with either wax paper or to use beeswax. As I have neither wax paper nor a cuttlebug, the other thing necessary for the particular technique described in the "technique zone", I decided to use beeswax. I created a background using a resist technique involving clear embossing powder, as the effect is actually quite similar to the wax paper technique in some respects. You stamp a background using versamark and then emboss with clear embossing powder. You then colour your piece in whatever way, I sponged with adirondack inks from Ranger. The embossed images resist the colouring. Using some kitchen paper you then iron your piece, this melts the clear embossing, so that your stamp background now appears as a lightcoloured "resist". After that I collaged with melted beeswax from the melting pot. Collage images are from "Digital Collage".
