Wax Lyrical

Hi! It is March 1 today so we start a new challenge over at Stamps and Stencils.
Sue is our host for this month and she has chosen the theme:
For this challenge she wants to see some wax on your projects, whether it's just dribbled, melted and then stamped into or a wax embellishment as long as you include some stamping or stencilling the choice is yours ! 

I have to make a confession. I didn't have any idea for my piece at all.
Suddenly I remembered the old play-reading liquid wax to tell smb future.
I didn't hesitate at all and melted a candle. Then I just poured the liquid to the cold water in a bowl. You can see the result here:

I thought it looked like a flower so I decided to give it a go.

 The flower was painted with black and old gold acrylic paints and partly covered with glitter. 

I decided to place it on a tag from craft paper, earlier stenciled with gold paint.

More stenciling with brown Distress ink.

I also added some text stamping and finished the tag off with some black, textil stickers.

  1. A fabulous project Lula, hard to believe the flower embellishment is just plain old candle wax. Looks so rich on the gold background.
