Christmas Wishes!

I wanted to try out a technique I had seen where you coat your image in bees wax after you finish stamping and coloring.  I stamped the Snowy Woods Christmas door using a black water resistant ink.  I then colored with a touch of watercolor and blended with an aquabrush. While I was doing that I had heated up bees wax in a meltpot waiting for my image to be finished.  I cut my image to size and then dipped it into the bees wax. I held the image with my tweezers and had to dip it in and move the tweezers to cover the entire surface. 

I then let it dry and when it was dry I used my heat gun to heat up the was and dabbed off any excess using a thick wad of baby wipes to ensure I didn't burn myself. :)

After it was dried I highlighted with a touch of white gel pen and some sparkle on my wreath.

The sentiment is from Frosty and Friends and stamped on white cardstock which was sponged to coordinate with the image.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday!
