Merry - bright

Hello everyone,

Today I have a trio of rusty ATC's for you. I made them a little shabby too as I thought it went well with the rusty backgrounds...

And here's how I made these... 

I used embossing powders on the chipboards. I used brass on the Elk's head and the stars, Red & Sparkly on the little circle that wasn't really a chipboard but a loose piece from inside a chipboard that fell out and I used for his nose.

Here is how that looks. 

Next I added some shading with my Big Brush Pens... 

Looks a bit more interesting like this I think. 

The paper was made with acrylic paint in 'iron' and it was made rusty with a patina spray.. I added some embossing and made sure it looked a little shabby... I also added some sari ribbon and some embroidery twine. 

On this card I also added the sari ribbon and embroidery twine and like on the other two a little doodling with a gold pen around the edges. 

This one got the same treatment too ! 

Here is another look at all three... 

I have used the following Chipboards:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Let the decorating begin...

Hi UmWowStudio Fans....
let the decorating begin!

I began my wall hanging with
UmWowStudio chippie
Holly and Berries

Now, when I was digging around in my
I found the above chippie and thought
it looked a like a Poinsettia...
so I transformed it into one!

I mixed Clear Modeling Paste with Roses are Red Glam
(i have a video HERE if you'd like more info)
and applied it to my Holly and Berries Chippie

When it was dry I painted on just a bit more Glam!

I then created a banner background using
two different size Canvas Garland
and 2 jute tassels.
which I altered using Distress Oxide.
(looks sooo much like it's tea stained)

I then chose a branch and
sewed the garland onto the branch.

I found a bit of vintage lace and
sewed it to my canvas banner.
My poinsettia was a bit to shiny
for my likin' so I painted on a bit of Crazing.
Now here is the best part.....
When the Crazing was dry, I flipped the poinsettia
over and spritz the chipboard with water
and let it sink in!
Then formed the chipboard petals.
I just LOVE UmWowStudio chippies
for this reason. They are so malleable.
And as I always say....nature isn't flat!

I painted some paper leaves with Lime Cordial Glam
and when dry I added a bit of Crazing.

I created a few curly q's with some
paper covered wire.

I painted the berries with white paint and 
added a bit of white Prills.

Here is the completed project.

I just love the rustic jingle bells I added!

I did my holiday decorating yesterday and
this beauty is hanging on the front door.

Are you creating any
new Christmas Decorations this season?
