Wow...bet you didn't think I'd be back already!! Working with the wax paper was easier than I thought. I hate throwing things out when they look so cool and well.......after the last card doing the resist with wax paper the spent wax paper had a beautiful design on it and I thought why not treat it kind of like Velum.
Here's what it looked like when I was done with the last card. So I decided to do a type of Northern lights effect using Tim Holtz distress ink pads. The paper doesn't get very dark no matter how much ink you use so just be satisfied with a lighter look.
I masked off an area for a glowing moon effect and just started adding combinations of yellow, red, blue green, and dark blue inks. I also used a paper towel to really burnish the color in and to remove from any residual wax that was left. Slip a piece of white paper under the wax paper to check for darkness. When your happy remove mask from moon and start stamping. I used Staz on in black and alot of pressure but the image is still very light..
I then mounted it on navy card stock with tape and then attached it to a white 5 x 6.5" card base. This was also a sympathy card so I was ok with it looking deeper on a dark mat.
I wanted to try it again but have it look brighter so I made this one which was adhered to white stock and then placed on a black card base. I also used a different stamp to show a little difference.
Like I said I hate throwing out something that I think I can transform and I think they look kind of cool. So if you try the previous posted card...save the wax paper and give these a try.
