Jackie's Luncheon

We have a very exciting luncheon coming up. Jackie is one of our BSL members who lives in the States. With a bit of planning behind the scenes one of our Australian members and her sons planned a trip to Australia for her. So we are having another luncheon so as many people as possible can meet her in Sydney.
This is the ATC I have made for the luncheon. I used lots of different backgrounds but this one is one of my favourites, I learnt how to do it at Stamp Camp last year, taught to us by Cathy Daulman.
Firstly I brayered the white gloss card with a multicoloured stamp pad. Then I scrunched wax paper, flattened it out, put it on top of the c/s, a layer of baking paper on top, then I ironed it. When it was cool I dabbed my black stamp pad across it and the wax resisted the ink. Then I stamped it and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then used the dress & bow die cut that my dear friend Mary gave me. I also embossed the background card with Cuttlebug Swiss dots and so I have the most elegant ATC.

Wax ATCs Take 2

This is the style I used for the Paperart Wax ATCs swap. Much better than my first attempt.
