Autumn Theme for MMM and ATC Stamp and Swap Blog

It' October and that can only mean one thing - AUTUMN. Over on Make My Monday the challenge this week is to muse a RESIST TECHNIQUE - take a look at what I came up with

The leaf images were stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and then coloured over with a white wax crayon. I then used some Stampin' Up inks - Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust and sponged these over. The wax crayon resists the ink and gives a really bright highlight to the card.

When you look to the side you can see that this is a different style of card - I found one here on Ruth's blog and she had a link to a YouTube video tutorial which I followed.
Here is the inside panel

This card uses the French Foliage stamp set.
The theme over on the ATC Stamp and Swap blog is also Autumn and I have used this technique to create my ATCs

Hope you can pop over and take a look - Jacqueline xx


  1. Difficult to think it is autumn with the very hot weather at the moment but this card certainly has a lovely autumnal feel

  2. A stunning card Jacqueline and lovely atcs, the wax resist is so effective. Love the great shape too.
    Have a good week.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  3. Jacqueline, what a lovely and unusual card, I've never seen this shape before.

    You must show me the wax technique one Tuesday!


  4. Hi Jacqueline, I think your card is wonderful. the colours you have used are so rich (much more than the distress inks if I am honest lol) and its a great fold. Your ATCS are fab too!

  5. I saw this technique demonstrated at convention last year and was wowed by it then. Your card and ATCs are fabulous - the technique looks great with the French Foliage leaves. Vx

  6. Love your card and the white wax crayon effect is so dramatic. Lovely ATCs too. Caz

  7. This is a gorgeous Autumnal card Jacqueline! The white wax crayon resist technique gives a fab highlight. I love how you stamped and sponged inside the card, it looks stunning!
