Do you wax?

Over on Lots to Do the challenge this week is beeswax, and as I have been playing with mine ..ooer missus that sounds dodgy!, I thought I would wax some bird moulds that I got this week, and also play with the  Idea-ology Tissue tape, which arrived on Friday, at the same time. This actually started out as last weeks Lots to Do challenge, but never got finished. I distress inked the background in lovely summery yellows, and added the tape, and distress inked over the top of it too. I see lots of possibilities for this tape. It is translucent and tears easily, and there is lots of it on a roll, and you get 2 different types in each pack too! I added some Tim stamps, using the black enamel accents to highlight a couple fo them, and added a phrase. The little wax birds were moulded in beeswax, and brushed with perfect pearls, and glued onto the postcard.
I think this was more of an experiment in various techniques rather than a complete piece of art!
Thank you girls for the challenge. Do pop over and see the other entries :)
Hugs
