Wax Paper Cuttlebug Resist
by Godelieve Tijskens
Combine Cuttlebug embossing with wax paper resist to create beautiful backgrounds.
- Cuttlebug™ folder
- Glossy cardstock (twice the size of Cuttlebug embossing folder)
- Wax paper (size of Cuttlebug embossing folder)
- Dye ink (I used the Fired Brick - Distress Ink from Ranger)
- Make-up sponge
- Paper towel or copy paper
Step 1Emboss the wax paper in the Cuttlebug™ with an Embossing folder of your choice.
Step 2Fold the glossy cardstock in half, and put the embossed wax paper inbetween.
Step 3Cover the glossy cardstock with copy paper or paper towel, to avoid wax on the iron. Select “cotton” setting on the iron, no steam! Iron the cardstock.
This will transfer the design from the wax paper on to the glossy cardstock.
Step 4Remove and discard the wax paper. Begin sponging the Distress Ink on, using a circular motion. Apply enough ink to get an even color.
Step 5Notice a positive and negative pattern, because both sides of the wax paper were used.
- Color looks less vibrant after a while.
Step 6Finish your card.
