Masking with Freezer Paper

Hi there - Linda here today to share a happy card with a masked sentiment.

With my love for watercolouring at the moment it was great to find a masking product that will stand up well to the application of watercolours. Normal masking paper would move and liquid masking is tricky for sentiments and fine spaces.
Cardmaker Shari Carroll inspired me to try Freezer Paper as a masking product.
So I grabbed myself some Freezer paper from the Scrapbook Boutique store
for today's technique.

Here's a few pics to show you the steps...

1. Die cut your sentiment from freezer paper (glossy side of the freezer paper down) and iron it in place on your watercolour card with a medium iron, no steam.
2. Stamp over the sentiment with the Darkroom Door Criss Cross Texture Stamp and Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink.

3. Choose your patterned paper and Distress Inks or watercolours to match
4. Watercolour over the freezer paper sentiment and allow to dry.
5. Heat the freezer paper with your heat gun to release the glue and gently peel it away to reveal your white masked sentiment.

6. Add an extra word or two to finish off your sentiment.
7. Adhere your patterned paper along the side and a few sequins to finish it off.

I hope you've enjoyed this masking step-by-step.
See you again soon...


  1. A fabulous technique and clear tutorial - good enough for me to try it for myself! Thanks so much for sharing so freely, and for showing this beautiful card!

  2. What a great technique Linda. Thanks pinning this to try some time.

  3. Great technique. Must give it a try.

  4. Genius! I've used freezer paper for sewing projects only, so this is a great way to use the HUGE roll I have ��. thanks Linda xx
