Stamping Resist

Here's another card from my wax paper resist series.  This one starts with a background made from glossy cardstock and wax paper resist.  Since I had used the Broken China Distress Ink for the resist pattern, I also used it to lightly ink the edges.  

The white mat for the focal & ribbon border was cut with a Spellbinder's die (A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader).  I threaded a piece of ribbon through it and wrapped it around to the back of the background cardstock.  I tied a knot in another piece of ribbon and glued it in place.

The patterned paper that mats the diamond-shaped focal is one of my pieces of leftover embossed waxed paper that I colored with alcohol ink.  I stamped it multiple times with one of the floral stamps from HOTP Artful Collection using StazOn ink.  The focal itself also uses a stamp from the Artful Collection.  I used an aqua gel pen to draw around the edge of the focal.  I also used it with my Dove Blender pen to color in the center of the "banner".
