It's Suzanne here today on the first of the month, sharing a technique: dry embossing + wax resist.
First you'll have to dry emboss a piece of cardstock or quite heavy watercolour paper and rub over the raised areas with a wax crayon or oil pastel. You don't have to use white neccessarily, you can also choose different colours of course.
Bruhos for example, I'm sure it will work very well - will try this, too. Let dry or dry it with a heat tool.

various distress stains
embossing powder black 432105
Decoart media crackle glaze clear 766218075437(135466)
Decoart media antiquing cream patina green DMM152-26
Now you can finish and embellish the cards however you like. I chose to heat emboss some of the stamp images to make them pop out more. The bodies of the butterflies are scraps of old book pages made into paper beads. I painted them with brown acrylic paint, covered them with crackle glaze and rubbed some antiquing cream into the cracks.
I just love the grungy look of this background technique.
I hope you enjoyed today's technique post. We'd love you to visit our de stempelwinkel stampers challenge blog and join in.
Have a great weekend everyone ...
