Monogram

Plans to go out this afternoon were cancelled so I've been making the most of my time!

A one point did not think this disaster would make it here but looking at the end result decided its quite fun.

The challenge this week at Less is More is to use a Monogram.   I've used wax and a seal with the initial Z on it.   Could not find any matches so decided to melt the wax with a heat gun.   Of course the blast of hot air blew the wax about until eventually I had enough control to get it where it was intended to go.  A little stamp embossed in gold and some gold rub on colour to highlight the Z.

Do have another CAS Monogram card in mind will have to see how time pans out.

Thank you for all your lovely comments and I agree it would look better on its own,  the stamping was done first and the rest of the plan was abandoned once the wax was done, which is why there is a stamp on here in the first place.

  1. Oh I love the way the seal has gone Zoe, rather funky! I think it would work without the stampede bit, but that;s me...!
    Great idea
    Thank you so much

  10. Oh WOW how stunning is this, considering it wasn't what you planned for, but don't they usually work out the best :)

  11. I think that the seal on a tall white card on its own would look amazing - not that this card doesnt look good too.

  24. Love the idea ....... this card is really nice but I reckon you should have another go .... bit more wax and no stamped image - think you'd be surprised by how fab it would look on it's own

  31. Sorry I shouldn't laugh but I did reading this post. I could just imagine you with the heat gun and wax - it's the sort of thing I would do.
    Love the outcome though - it worked really well.
