Play day Tuesday

I had a bit of a play day are the results of my experiments:

This first set is made by melting wax crayons onto Anaglypta wallpaper using an iron.
Next, stamp an image on white tissue paper with Versamark ink and cut around the image. Sprinkle embossing powder on it, and place the piece of tissue onto the waxed paper, and heat with heat gun. The image will pop, and the tissue will sink into the wax becoming almost invisible. I loved seeing the transformation.

The next set is made with glossy card – my project uses card from LocalKing.
Ink up the card with about three colors of Distress Inks with a sponge. Dry with heat gun. Place a stencil over the card, mist with water. Remove stencil and blot with paper towel to remove water. You get a ghosty image, which I quite liked. I have not used Distress inks with glossy cardstock before. Quick and easy background for a card.
