To wax or not to wax . . .

I learned a good lesson today and one I shall probably not forget! I used a white embossing powder the flowers and butterflies and then later decided I was going to finish with beeswax, of course the embossing powder re-melted, I think in future I shall protect embossing with some multi medium so I won't have blurred flowers again. The lesson: It's not always good to wax ladies ;)
I did have great fun using my favourite stamps, a Suzi Blu stamp is the focal girl. All of the flowers are Crafty Individuals and the heart and words are Stampotique.
Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx

  2. Oh, my, Samantha! You really made me laugh with your title! Of course, you know what came to mind! But, seriously, I had the same problem this week! I counted the letters twice for my title, and still ended up 3 O's short! Some days are just like that. But, still, I love the white embossing! Thanks for the lesson in planning, my friend!

  5. Would never have occured to me that the heat would remelt the powder and it looks lovely despite that oops moment. I love the glow the beeswax gives it too.

  6. If you hadn't said Sam I would never have noticed and would probably have thought that it was intended! It is still a beautiful piece and love the little girl holding the puppy.

  9. Wax or not wax? Wax, of course! Maybe with little embossing powders (i'm not keen of them). Lovely result, Sam!
