No Peeking!

Happy Tuesday!!!
Today is Tag it Tuesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I made some Christmas tags... it's never to early to start, right? 
I cut my tags out of watercolor paper and stamped my fox with Versafine ink. Then I took the fox die, cut it out of wax paper, and ironed it onto the tag over my fox stamp. Once I had the wax paper securely on the tags, I water colored the backgrounds with my Peerless watercolors. Once the watercolor was dry I pulled up the wax paper mask and colored in the fox with my Zig markers. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the All Around Christmas Stamp Setglued on the shadow base tag, and attached the ribbon and twine.
You can see more about using wax paper as a mask, here.

    1. I forgot to mention that the technique using freezer paper ironed onto paper is a super idea for masking...going to try that one for sure. It works great on fabrics for lots of uses also.
