Christmas Baubles (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have some more Christmas projects to share with you today, featuring some of the stamps that we used on last month's TV shows on Hochanda.

For my first project, I have created a piece of home decor in soft vintage colours. I wanted to use very non-traditional Christmas colours, and this soft pink and green was exactly what I had in mind for my project. I used a canvas from my stash, which I painted with acrylic paint, and added some ivy die cuts all around the edge. I painted a piece of dictionary paper with the same acrylic paint, but thinning the paint, so that it allowed the words to remain visible.

I used Pearl Soft Form Relief Paste, coloured with Brushos to create my focal images, and these were left to dry overnight. I dry brushed some of the same colour of Soft Form Relief Paste over the ivy leaves, which acted as a kind of gilding paste, and it gives a lovely shimmer to the leaves.

Once the two pears were set, I peeled them from the stamps, trimmed the rough edges, and added a tough of gold gilding paste to the surface, before adhering them inside the canvas.

My second project is much more colourful! I created a background using Distress Inks , and added the large textured background image from the Pears and Baubles stamp set. I stamped three baubles onto a spare piece of card and cut them out. I attached them to the background, along with some bold purple ribbon.

A sentiment from the Let's Get Festive stamp set completes the card.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Love the pears, delicate and elegant, all year round use I think

  2. The soft form relief paste has worked its magic on the pears which look great within the box type frame Judith, and love the background script and the pretty ivy design around the outside. The card is so bright and beautiful and love the way you have hung the baubles from the ribbon over that wonderful textured background. x
