Wax Resist Technique

Or challenge of the month is the Wax Resist Technique at Sweet Stamps. 
I actually used the  embossing folder wax resist technique for this card. 
You can see the instructions here.
For this card. I ran glossy card stock with the Leaves embossing folder through my Big Shot. 
I then placed the embossed paper between waxed paper and ironed it. 
I rubbed the Sweet Stamp Aegean Shades dye ink over the embossed image. 
Then I stamped the Curved Flowers (ATC1003)(new release) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 
I colored the image with copics and layered it on Nellie Snellen Multi Frame oval die cuts. 
I added some aqua lace and pearls and then a sheer black ribbon and bow.
