You have to try this Resist Technique

I used the following supplies:
Isn't this a great resist background? I started with an embossing folder and used ink over the background.
 Here is a couple pictures of the wax paper in the embossing folders and the glossy paper with the designs.
 I got two papers from each piece of wax paper one piece in front and one behind.
 I started by rubbing an ink pad lightly over the glossy paper and then went over the paper another time...I believe the darker the better

 I matted my image and then matted that on a doily I split in half and mounted in each diagional corner.
That yummy ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon ~ the June ribbon of the month club assortment.
That wonderful Christmas paper is from Bo Bunny .
I hope you try this wonderful technique- it was so fun to play with.
