My Craft Spot - Day 4

Happy Thursday! Hope you are having a great week.Today we are sneaky peeking Merry Christmas. I decided to make a mini home decor item.

It has ribbon to hang on a wall/tree. When we are visiting friends and family I always like to take a little something extra and it's small enough for most people to find room for!


I took a blank 3.5 x 2.5 canvas  and painted with cream acrylic paint.Heat blasted(yes I am impatient!). Then used Willow and Lemonade Adirondack acrylic paint dabbers and heat blasted again.
I then added Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters,Fired Brick and Brushed Corduroy. Then dusted with Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold.

I inked up my stamp with black archival ink and laid it down on my worktop and took my canvas to it.
Then added some stars,also from this stamp set. When dried I coloured them with yellow acrylic paint and added Glamour Dust.

To make the ribbon rose(pretend poinsetia in my world!lol),I used a scrap circle of card and covered with adhesive.I scrunched some yellow crinkle ribbon for the centre and then twisted cranberry crinkle ribbon around it.I then cut away the extra card and secured the end with glue and sprinkled the flower with Glamour Dust.
Added Olive Green crinkle ribbon at the bottom with a ruffle and Cream to hang it with.
All the ribbons are from My Craft Spot.

Kimberly has some lovely blog candy for you again today. It is the Mistletoe Seam Binding set and all you have to do is check out all the amazing projects and leave her a comment over at My Craft Spot.
