Sunday Stampers - Lace
Over on this weeks Sunday Stamper the theme is Lace. I have made a canvas for the challenge. It's the first time I have had a go at using wax. I started by colouring the canvas with Tim Holtz Peeled paint ink and then stamped in the same colour on to some tissue. I then laid it over the canvas and poured on the wax. I spread the wax over the whole canvas with a paint brush and kept it hot and melted with my heat gun. I'm not sure if that's how you use it but it seemed to work lol. The stamped image has a lace effect. I then added some embleshments I made using moulds and my melt pot. The bronze coloured ones are made with UTEE in Bronze and gold and the white ones are made with wax. I popped on some metal flowers which are from some cheap jewellery I brought to use on my craft projects. Added a grunge board swirl. I then finished up with some lace trimmed beading and rock candy crackle paint. Overall I like the effect and will use wax again although I wouldn't mind taking a class to see how you are supposed to use it lol!
