Hello Besties!

Today we have for you a special project from 
Cindy van der Velde.
She has a technique to make your creations look aged.

For this project, Cindy has used this adorable

Here are the supplies that you will need to do this.

* Black paper
* dies with embossing parts or embossing folders
* gilding wax
* card topper or stamp. I have used a cardtopper you can find here. I have used a photoshop program to make the cardtopper a little bit larger;

You start with cutting your dies and emboss them.

Take a little bit of gilding wax on your finger and go slightly over the embossed parts.
 It will look like this:

This part hasn't been done totally, it is just to show you how it works. When you think it is waxed enough you polish it up, just like shoepolish, with a soft piece of fabric. I have used gold gilding wax, but you have it in a large range of colours. You can use it on other colours of cardstock too, but to "age" your creation I always use a dark colour of cardstock. You do the same with the gilding wax when you have used an embossing folder or other embossed dies. 

And now the finished result:

It is very simple and you get a great effect! 

Hugs Cindy
