Cat's Choir! Christmas Box

Good morning. It's my turn post over at the Stampotique Designers Blog, so I've decided to double up this post with the Crafty Ribbons Advent post.  I've been desperate to show you this wall hanging, but have been unable to do so until I knew that it been safely received! It was a complete devil to photograph, so please excuse the picture quality.

It started life as a simple kraft box frame from  The Range. I covered it with a thick layer of Gesso and dabbed at it with a palette knife to give it loads of texture. Whilst it dried I stamped out, cut and coloured Oh Tree, Small Tree Topper, Front Door Shrubbery, Christmas Ornaments Cube, Mini Christmas Ornaments CubeWelcome Door, Line Up and Snowman. I then drew a little carol book and die cut a Lampost using my new Sizzix Die and coloured them with Promarkers.

Once the Gesso had dried, I layered up some torn,inked strips of paper and dabbed some textured modelling paste over them. As the frame still looked a little bare I added some silver heat embossing using Abstract Foliage. Once the base was completed, I created the scene.

To finish I chucked on a bit of glitter and some Glossy Accents. I then added the fantastic Merry Christmas ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, and some Pinflair icicles which were covered with Glamour Dust.

Thanks for stopping by today.
