Fabric Paint and the Big Shot!

We had another Green Mountain Stamper's meeting this past Saturday under my upline Jennifer Heffernan. We have swaps and demonstrations and some of the ladies bring in samples of their work to share. This is a great group to be a part of! Carrie Wilson demonstrated a great new technique today(She is the one that demonstrated the scallop circle flower.)
The technique uses Freezer paper to make a stencil using punches or the big shot to use on fabric!
This is very easy to do, here is how:
Get some freezer paper at the supermarket. It has to be freezer paper because it only has the wax on one size. Cut it out using the punches or die cuts that you want to use just like you would paper.

Instead of using the cut out piece, you are going to use the outside as a stencil. Put it where you want it to go on your fabric and then iron it down. Make sure that the shiny side is down.

Now using fabric paint and a paint brush, paint it in just like a stencil.

While it is still wet, peel off the stencil and you have your perfect shape!!

I put a bunch more around it to get the final image.
Here is the one using the 2 step bird punch with the scallop circle die cut with the big shot. This is the die cut with the medium and small scallop circles on it.
This is just showing the two sides of the paper. Remember you want the shiny side down when you iron.

Iron it on.

Cutout the scallop with the die cut out of freezer paper.

Iron it around the bird and tree branch.

Paint it in.

The end result!
