Using wax paper to test out stencilling Cut the die out using a layer of wax paper. I usually do this on more intricate designs as they come out so much easier, with little damage. Leave the die in place and using some ink, ink inside the die. 

This enables you to see what the finished look will be before you commit to doing it on the actual paper, as you can see the design through.

 Lastly lift the wax paper to begin the process again if you are happy with the look. In this card I also added a little ink to the very edges of the design to tie in the inking a little more .
