Hi there Polkadot!
Let’s begin the new year with a card.
I received this bundle of gilding waxes by Creative Expressions to create stuff for the Cartnscrapart blog. It is a really grey and dark day today, so it was rather impossible to capture the sheer glow of those waxes on my paper!
I tried to capture it by closeup, but it doesn’t do it any justice.
I clear embossed some white inked stamped images on kraft paper. I took some of the blending solution that comes with the waxes and went to town. The solution doesn’t smell like a rose garden, so I guess you should use it in a well ventilated area. I mixed a little of the wax and the blending solution on my craft sheet. Took a brush to it, and blended three colors together (real red, copper, gold)
I finished of the card by hand lettering my greeting, and going crazy on dotting the background with a white paint pen. I backed up the kraft card with black and put it on a gold greeting card. Happy new year everybody!
