Last minute Christmas Decor at We do Doobadoo

Good morning my lovelies, eeeeek Christmas is coming a bit too quickly for my liking, We've been so busy at work I've barely thought about Christmas shopping yet but I think I'll have to go on a mission this weekend and make a start as it won't be long and the big day will be here. At We Do Doobadoo we've got a new challenge and this time around our theme is 'Last minute Christmas Decor' and I've made a little canvas for my DT project. As always our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous Dutch Doobodoo so you don't want to miss out on your chance to win!

 I've used my favourite Dutch Doobadoo 'Stars' Stencil to create the background for my canvas. I primed with black gesso and dusted on some Black PanPastel Fine Pearl Medium. Once that was dry I applied a mixture of Maimeri Iridescent Medium and Rich Gold PanPastel through the stars stencil and sprinkled on some sparkly gold glitter for some extra bling. The focal image is a stampbord coaster coloured with Black distress ink, the image is a clear stamp from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped with versamark and then embossed with a WOW Gold sparkle EP.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafting for all seasons: anything Christmas but a card
Crafty Ribbons: Mono Christmas
Loves Rubber Stamps: winter/Christmas
Love to Create: Non traditional Christmas colours
Shopping our Stash: favourite technique (stencilling this week lol)
Sweet Stamps: sparkle

Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
