SU027, SU028, Wax Paper Resist

Wax Paper Resist - Take a piece of Wax Paper slightly larger than your glossy cardstock. Crumle it up and then smooth it back out. Criumle it up again and smooth it out again. The more times you do this, the finer the resist will be. Usually a couple of crumples is good tho.

Sandwich your wax paper between two pieces of Glossy Cardstock, with the glossy sides facing the wax paper, both top and bottom. Using two pieces of cardstock yields two backgrounds in one step. If you're going to drag out the iron, you might as well make a few sheets of this at a time.

Iron over your paper "sandwich" with a fairly hot iron without steam.

Take pieces apart and throw wax paper away. If you want to make two more sheets, repeat as above with a new sheet of wax paper.Brayer over your glossy cardstock with Dye Ink. Cover the entire piece of cardstock.

Wipe over your cardstock with a paper towel. The ink will resist where the wax from the wax paper stuck to the glossy cardstock.
