To create the background, tear a piece of waxed paper slightly larger than the glossy paper you are using. Crumble into a ball and then flatten out. Using the brayer, first cover the waxed paper in a light colour such as Brocade Blue, then go over it again with a lighter touch in a darker colour, such as Night of Navy. Then, stamp whatever you would like over top.

Happy Stamping!

Edit: Oops, forgot to mention that once you have brayer the waxed paper, flip the inked side onto the GLOSSY side of the glossy paper, and use the brayer to push the ink from the waxed paper onto the glossy paper. That'll teach me to post, fend off a 3yr old with the munchies, answer the door and take the cinnnamon buns out of the oven all at the same time. Dontcha just luv multi-tasking? sheesh...

Not much too it

Take a piece of wax paper larger than an A4 card front. Crumble it up and then unfold it and smooth it out.

Place a piece of glossy paper (shiny side up), then place the waxpaper next, then another piece of glossy (but this time shiny side down).

Iron.

Remove wax paper and brayer on glossy side. You'll see the pattern start to emerge.

Guess there is more than one way to use wax paper!!

On the first one after brayering the color on the wax paper, do you then put your glossy over top of it to transfer the color to the glossy paper?

needsmorstamps forgot to say the rest! After you have ironed, the wax transfered to your glossy CS so tht you will now get a resist by brayering ink over the CS! I suppose you could sponge the ink on but you really need quite a bit. I have only brayered.
