Hi TLC'ers! I hope you're ready for some fun. I sort of misled you last week when I hinted that you will need a white opaque pen. You WILL need it, but not until next week...so if you didn't get around to finding one, you have a whole other 7 days to locate one.
Today what you will need for this technique is:
Wax Paper (yes, the type from your kitchen)
A few pieces of scratch paper,
A brayer works best, but you could also probably use sponges if that is all you have
An embossing folder - Cuttlebug, texture plate or something similar
Are you ready? Ok, let's get to it.
Today's technique is a new twist on an older idea. Beth (showmestamper) introduced the TLC'ers to this technique back in April 2005, using Beate's Wax Paper Resist technique which can be found HERE
The twist idea comes Pat Huntoon and her wonderfully creative group of designers who consistently come up with fantastic ideas for the Technique Junkies newsletters
The instructions go something like this:
Cut a piece of wax paper a little larger than the size of your embossing folder or texture plate.
Run the embossing folder or texture plate through your machine of choice (there are so many now, I hate to actually name ONE)
Remove your wax paper from the folder, which should have a pretty design all smashed into it.
The remainder of the process is EXACTLY as steps #2 through #7 in Beate's instructions. (link shown above)
That's it - but what fun you'll have personalizing your cards with colors and design backgrounds. Now, get busy and let me see your awesome creations.

And, as always...be sure to add the keyword TLC219
(no spaces) when you upload your cards so that they will be pulled into the TLC219 gallery.
Ok - let's get busy and let me see your creative genius!
HINT for next week...well, I gave it to you last week...lol You will need an opaque white gel pen.
