W is for Wrinkled Wax paper Resist with Embossing Folder

W is for Wrinkled Wax paper Resist with Embossing Folder. I saw a technique using a Wax paper Resist with embossing folders on Youtube. I like the look of Wax Paper Resist using wrinkled wax paper, so decided to try this technique with Wrinkled Wax Paper.
Wrinkled wax paper, opened it up and lay it over a piece of glossy card stock inside an embossing folder. Then ran it through a Cuttlebug.
 Removed cardstock and wax paper from the embossing folder. Used a hot dry iron to press the wrinkled wax paper on the glossy card stock for about 20 - 30 seconds. Then remove the wax paper.
 Here you can see the waxed paper markings on the glossy card stock.
Used a blending tool to rub some blue Distress Inks over the card.
 Then I used the blending tool to add some green Distress Inks over the raised areas
Here is how it turned out:

Very pretty.... I'm going to steal your technique. Pea, Maggi, and Mary are coming over for a cuttlebug play day on 3/12.

Cool. I have several background pieces made with this technique. Thank you for giving me another way to use them.
