PaperArtsy Topic 3 'Wax' Challenge.

Hello friends and welcome here.
The PaperArty topic 3 is 'Wax' the fortnight, I had use a wax only partially and I didn't know the exact use. Also Lin Brown is really great tutorial in this blog, she is presenting a great samples. I was very inspired by her and I play along with her gorgeous new flower stamp.
No1 I used the Grey Board 5 x7" , painted white gesso onto the surface then I collaged some tissue papers and painted clear gesso again.
When it dried I waxed the entire by the bee wax.

No2 I stamped fabulous flower ELB25 and Hot Picks HP1109, HP1503 onto the tissue paper and white stamping card then I painted including the new color Fresco. I attached it on the background by heat tool.
I tried to stencil but it wasn't good result then I was erased them.  I tried some other techniques these were same result. That is my future challenges.
Finally I stamped Harlequin mini stamp and Hot Picks word by new gold Fresco and StazOn Jet Black.  Painted edges with a crayon.
This is the panel what I did.

Thank you so much stopping by and see you soon.
Have a great craft days.
