Hi folks...here I am with my tutorial for Spectrum Noir, today I thought I would share how to make a background using aquatints with the wax resist technique...
First I cut a piece of wax paper and ran it through an embossing folder.
Next I sandwiched the wax paper between 2 pieces of watercolor card and gave it an iron...not too much but just enough to lift the embossed was onto the card.
Next I added a layer of undiluted green aquatint.
I then added some added in some blue aquatint.
Next I loaded my paintbrush with water and brushed all over the card to blend the colors together.
Next using a soft sponge, I rubbed the card to lift the excess ink off.
I die cut my frame and attached a piece of acetate and then I applied 3D foam all the way around the edges.
I added some pearls and sequins to the inside and attached the watercolored card to the back.
The finished card...
