Embossed Wax Paper Background a la Gina K

Die Cut Divas are being sponsored by the Amazing Gina K Designs this month

Today I want to share some cards I made after watching Gina at StampTV  - Embossed wax paper background.

I couldn't wait to do this technique as it has been a few years since I tried it out... so here's my results of embossed wax background.

I CASE'd Gina's card for this first one.  I used Mermaid Lagoon distress ink to sponge the background.  Not sure who makes my folder as it has no name on it... But it was a great one to use, being very detailed.  I then used the flowers and leaves from Warm Spring Wishes and coloured with Distress inks and daubers before fussy cutting.  The sentiment is from Frame and Flowers 2. I used a La La land die cut for the corners.  And my flourish was one that came with a magazine so has no name on it.  My mat and the corners and flourish are all dark blue card.

And the other half of the ironed off wax paper

This one was sponged with Dried Marigold distress ink.  The flowers are from Frame and Flowers 2 and were stamped with Hero Arts Apricot ink - first layer stamped off and then the second layer being full strength.  The leaves are die cut with a MFT dienamics leaf die.  I added some Spectrum Noir glitter pen on the roses.

If you haven't checked out Gina K design's Stamp TV, I can totally recommend it.. there is so much inspiration there.
