Waxy Boots

Afternoon all,

Here is another waxy creation. This time I have used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the background. I taught a lovely one on one class today using waxed paper and this is another of the samples I did up yesterday for it. Such a lovely way to spend the better part of the day!

I love this boot stamp. It seems to have attitude! I just bought a divine pair of Diana Ferrari just the other week which remind me of these totally.
I am totally going back to good old StazOn (except for alcohol ink stuff, of course) after this card! The archival black took forever to dry...I smudged it twice, having to clean it off and restamp no less than three times. Guess I am lucky it actually wiped off the gloss so I COULD go again!

Stamps: Stamp It Australia 2818E These Boots, 3301C If the Shoe Fits, Hero Arts (Unknown Code) Inks: Adirondack Cranberry, Archival Black Cardstock: Bazzill, White Gloss Other: Kaiser Pearls, Cuttlebug, Divine Swirls Embossing Folder, Nestabilities Rectangle Set, White Gel Pen, Prisma Pencils, Odourless Mineral Solvent
