OOPS, back again, last time, promise.  I forgot to mention that when done with the inking: be sure to rub entire surface with clean paper towel, to allow the wax paper resist to show.  That's important, ran out of room and plum forgot to mention that.  Sorry,  cuz, that last rubbing bit is the "viola" moment.  So there you go.  I'm done.  Wordy gal that I am, chuckle.  Smile. Good luck, Liane.

By the way, Liane, nice save with the Xyron, love it when someone makes lemonade.  You go girl! Please tell me if my comment helped you.  I know you will just love this easy way to make backgrounds.  I went nuts, made different colors, used ink pads, used Distress browns.  Wonderful one of a kind if you do the scrunch method with the wax paper.  With the folders, I've done several with all over patterns.  Remember if a portion of the paper doesn't turn out real well, just put your image or ribbon over other words:  make lemonade.  Don't waste card stock, I always say.  Smile.

to Liane,  Frustrating that your first try was a bust, I'm sure. What I did using the exact same wax paper.  Run the wax paper through the Cuttlebug folder: make a good deep impression, I added a piece of card stock to the sandwich, NOT inside the folder.  Put that wax paper in-between two pieces of card stock cut to size.  Emptied iron of water, NO steam, remember?  Put it on a towel on my table, put card stock under and over this little sandwich and proceeded to iron on high.  The top scratch paper gets all the damage, if any, I didn't have problems.   Take out the wax paper, so both pieces of card have designs you can barely see.  Careful which side you ink. Lovely results, great backgrounds.

very pretty, great technique, thanks for sharing!

What is the name of the wax paper Gina used?  I tried several times, using Reynolds Cut-Rite wax paper, a hot iron and all I got was scorched paper :(  Not to make the project a total bust, I ran some card stock through my Xyron machine then added the melted piece of wax paper to the card stock. Then direct applied some Distressed Ink to it, then rubbed off the excess. It actually turned out pretty and had a nice texture. I would like to do the just wax paper though...any suggestions?

hi, I tried the waxpaper idea and it did not transfer to my cardstock properly. Are you using regular card stock?
