Good morning folks,I was lucky enough to make the top 3 of the Time Flies challenge at Indigo Blu so I was chuffed to bits to be invited to join the team as a guest designer for their Winter Blues Challenge!
It was a great excuse to use my new Indigo Blu metallic acrylic paints to decorate these MDF baubles. I primed them with white gesso and then created the backgrounds with Vodka Martini and Sleeping Beauty paint to create a graduated effect. Once the paint was dry I used an assortment of Indigo Blu Christmas stamps to decorate them. I stamped with white gesso initially and then used the metallics to highlight the images although that doesn't show up too well on my pics. Next I used Coarse Texture paste dusted with White Coarse Pearl PanPastel Medium to add a frosty sparkle. The edges were gilded with Winter Dawn gilding flakes.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoes : sparkle
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas: time to decorate
Creative Card Crew: Holiday season
Creative Craft Cottage: Christmas
Holly Jolly Christmas: anything Christmas
Penny Black and More: anything goes with a stamp
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: holly jolly stamping
Sweet Stampin: Snow time
Thanks so much for visiting today
