Pat Carr's Camp Avalon May 2016 - Wax Paper Emboss Resist Technique

Hi there,
I attended Pat Carr's Camp Avalon a couple of weeks ago at Toodyay.  This is one of my Shoe Box projects that I created for the camp.  I used waxed paper and the Sizzix Spring Bouquet embossing folder for the emboss resist technique for the background. You emboss the wax paper with the embossing folder and then iron the pattern (iron set to dry ironing) onto the card inside a piece of copy paper and the wax transfers to the card.  Then you sponge ink over the card and your pattern magically appears.  Very easy technique to do.  I faded the sponging for the solid part of the butterfly looking for more dimension.  The scalloped edge was made with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.
