I took a plain 5"x6" burlap stocking from Pouch Mart and dressed it for Christmas with a simple wide bow tied around the top and die cut stamped holly from Festive Foliage and a tag tucked around the bow - and I just love how it came out!
Festive Foliage and Santa's Coming to Town.
Cas-ology Cue card - Bell challenge.
My next project is a little 4"x4" framed canvas that I got at Joann's. First I dry brushed the canvas with milk chocolate and grey wolf acrylic paints - just kind of streaky coverage so some of the canvas still showed through.After it dried - I brushed the whole canvas with Matte Mod Podge.
First I adhered the lace along the bottom. Then I die cut 3 mistletoes from olive felt using Claire's new die. I die cut the berries from off white felt. I stamped the felt with the mistletoe stamp from Festive Foliage using Archival coffee ink. I layered the mistletoe over each other using foam dots, adhered the berries with glue and attached the bow over the stems.Tiny Twinkles to the dot the 'i's' and also to the berries. You can barely see it in the pic - but I stamped some pine needles from one of the pine branch stamps from Festive Foliage in green over the 'kisses' sentiment. I also brushed the edges with acrylic paint.
Here is the little canvas on my dining room wall
and here it is on my bookcase - a pretty little decoration that you could actually leave up all winter if you wanted!
