With a little help from the wax paper in the kitchen cupboard, Ombre Butterflies was created.
To make the background, a piece of wax paper was run through an embossing folder. Then, the wax paper was sandwiched between to shets of glossy paper. Because the wax is on both sides, this will make two backgrounds. Now, iron your sandwich to get the wax to resist when you apply the ink to the glossy paper. Then one piece of paper was brayered using a Kalidescope ink pad. Take a paper towel and rub the paper to make the white shine through. I absolutely love the look the background has and did not want to cover much of it up.
Butterflies were staped and fussy cut.
