Christmas Challenge at Sarah Hurley's

Hi there, back again with a shaker Christmas decoration made using the cute little reindeer digistamp from Sarah Hurley's Tinseltown cd. The theme over at Sarah Hurley's Challenge this time around is 'Christmas' and we are sponsored by Letraset so pop on over to the challenge blog and find out more.

I used greyboard for the frame, diecut with nesties Labels 11 and 4 and painted using acrylic paints and PVA glue to create a crackle effect. I backed the frame with acetate and used shaker tape to attach it to the image. The image is coloured with promarkers and derwent pencils, I've used Shasta puff embossing powder to create the snow and then added crushed glass glitter for the shaker filling.

To embellish my little Christmas decoration I've made some rolled roses from ribbon and lace and added some little wooden 'berries' and some glamour dusted leaves (die cut using Krealies dies)

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Cardmad Fairy's : winter wonderland
Crafts 4 Eternity: Christmas decorations
Delicious Doodles: hairy legs
Dream Valley: sparkle
Elephantastic: weather related
My Sheri Crafts: Christmas decoration
Paper Sundaes: Winter Wonderland

Thanks for popping by

  6. I love those little wooden berries & the way you've made something quite striking & original. Love the red nose & the way those soft ribbon roses & lace combine with the crackled frame give a very shabby chic look.
