Anything goes for The Paper Players

I keep on creating my own backgrounds. I saw this technique on YouTube and it's called "Wax Paper Resist Using Embossing Folders" and I thought it was just right to participate in this week's Anything Goes Challenge!

If you would like to know how to make this technique, you can see the video here or just send me an email and I'll be glad to explain it to you. The tree on my card was painted with daubers.

I made the Get Well Soon card with the same technique but in this case, I painted the flowers with watercolor and added a touch with Tangerine Tango marker, and finished with pearls.

I hope you like it! God Bless you all and enjoy!

  5. Lili, i just love the technique you shared with the tree image. I have been wanting that set for quite som time now. I really like how you created the sentiment, too and the inside is as gorgeous as the front. Thanks so much for playing along at The Paper Players this week! :)
