Who still uses waxed paper?

Today you will be needing some for this Challenge
 Our TTSTV  tutorial is brought to us this week by Jane
and she is showing us how to do the Waxed Paper Resist Technique.
This created some interesting background papers. 
I  used Tim Holtz green ink on this one. The images 
are from the Birdcages Set! I heat embossed the birdcage 
using a antique gold powder. I think the bird is really a 
Cockatoo but I wanted color so it has now become 
a hybrid parrot!! The branches were 
cut with Spellbinder dies.Used the the green background
and vines to try to create a outdoor setting for
the bird. Hope you all are warming up in
the cooler climates. We had to birng our birds in
because here in the desert we hit 100 degrees today,
not so happy about summer starting already!
Looks like its going to be a long hot one.
Just have to share this pic....
so excited to say my little sis's daughter
had her first baby last night. She was a little
stubborn getting here but here she is my new
great niece Miss Emma
a hour or so old.

A charming card. Welcome baby Emma, so precious!
Isn't 100 degree over there already, oh no... I am away in Seattle and now Vancouver, in the 50s, so glad I missed the heat!
