If you have not used Bees Wax yet on Maya Road chipboard or wood pieces you need to do so now. Talk about a BLAST of creative fun, I promise. I inked the Ornate Vintage Butterflies and Art Journaling Words Stamp Sets using True Black ink onto a blank chipboard page from the Scallop Square Basic Album and a page from ATC Coaster Album that has been covered with vintage ledger paper.
Next, I heated my clover sewing iron (small triangle tip) then applied a few pellets of Bees Wax onto the pages. When ironing over the pellets like this they melt on contact. Once I had the layer of wax on each page to the thickness I liked I then melted the wax in the area where I wanted the ATC attached. Once cooled the ATC was set in place for good.
To alter the butterfly piece I just took colored broken crayons I have had since the girls were in elementary school, touched the tip to the hot iron and let the droplets fall where they may until the entire butterfly was covered.
