More wax paper embossed backgrounds....

I had so much fun making the wax paper embossed backgrounds.. I used two different folders... one piece of wax paper and one folder gives two background pieces.  I used different colours of distress ink to sponge on the wax backgrounds.  See my post from yesterday to see the first two card I made...
and now onto the next two cards.


For this first one, I used Wilted Violet distress ink to sponge the background.  I finished my card with stamps and dies from StampNation Young at Heart collection. 


On this one, I used Weathered Wood distress for the background and used a Simon Says Stamp die cut flower with a Hero Arts Sentiment.  I didn't have any black sequins so I used a Mama Elephant die (which I bought off Lisa Haines) which had some little sequins included.   I cut them with black textured card. 

I really enjoyed trying out this technique.   If you haven't seen Gina's video, you can see it HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope I have inspired you to try out this technique
