Frost Background technique

The technique used on the background on this card is called Frost Background. It's really simple to do. All you need is some wax paper, some dye inks, a brayer and some glossy cardstock. I just LOVE anything "faux" and anything using simple items around the house for something other than what they are intended to be used for! So, all you do is take a piece of wax paper and crumple it up really good. Then, flatten out the wax paper and use your brayer to cover it with ink. Then, flip the wax paper over onto your glossy cardstock and use the brayer again to roll the inked side of your wax paper onto your glossy cardstock. Then, remove the wax paper from the cardstock and let it dry! Easy, peasy! Here are the items I used to make this card.
