This last of my Thank You note series features one of my favorite backgrounds . . .

Here are the simple instructions:
1. Crumple a piece of waxed paper.  Smooth it out and lay it on your cardstock.
2. Sandwich this between two sheets of typing paper and iron – no steam.
3. Let cool and sponge on your favorite soft colors of any dye ink.
4. Overstamp and/or embellish with whatever images you like.

The crumpled wax will act as a resist and give you a softly textured background.  This is a quick and easy method that never fails.  Try it!
