On the Seventh Day of Christmas . . .

QKD gave to me some Funky Trees! This is such a fun set; there are three different trees in the set, but I pulled out the one the one that I see is as a Christmas tree. Of course, it could be used for other types of projects.

I used a cool resist technique using wax paper; I lightly ironed the wax paper on the tag and then after some of the wax transferred, I then used my watercolors to paint over the top. After it dried, I gently rubbed off to reveal the resist and then stamped my tree image on the tag.

The To/From sentiment and the Do Not Open sentiment come from the Light of Christmas Stamp Set.

I then added some stickles for my star and my little ornaments on the tree. Again, a somewhat traditional set, but nontraditional at the same time. Come back tomorrow for day 8.
