Pretty Wax Tag

There are lots of cool challenges to start off 2012 with a creative Bang!! I've made this tag with two challenges in mind.


Over at Gingersnap Creations the Spicey Theme Challenge is to use Wax in one form or the other on your creation. I've had some beeswax sitting in my stash for quite some time, and today I thought I'd have a go, because it's not commercial bees wax I've been able to melt it with my heat gun rather than needing a melting pot. I stamped onto a manila tag, then applied the wax, melted and then added some some images and then more wax, and so on until I was happy, I love how the wax softens the images but also really adds to the aged look.


Over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges They're challenged us to us something from our New Stash from Santa :-) On this tag there's a whole lot of new stuff, The resin flowers and the very pretty chiffon flower with pearl centre are my fav though.

As always thanks for taking the time to look.

Debi, this is beautiful, I love the effect of the wax, and the colours coming through are fab.

I tried wax, just the once, on canvas.....mine wasn't a good look. This one is perfect. Maria x
