TWINKLE TWINKLE BIG GOLD STAR

Hi all, Kat here,
on this chilly December morning,
I thought I would shear with you a Christmas decoration
I made to hang in my window this year,

Don't forget if you make a purchase in the shop
this month you will be sent out a free stamp
click HERE for the details.

I started with a gold star I got from a pound shop
& decorated it with the following :-
the Santa off mini Christmas plate
stamped with black archival ink
cut out & glittered round the edge,
& stuck with foam pads onto a gold nest ability shape,
I then cut 2 lengths of patterned paper from the
Rosette Decorative strip die & stuck them together
to make a bigger rosette, edged with a Gold acrylic paint dabber
I then stuck some foliage bits cut from
brown glittery & antique gold paper using
between the layers,
then I added some gold bells on ribbon (to hang down)
& a bell/bow embellishment to finish.

Here are some close ups.




Hope you like it!

well this is my last piece, this side of Christmas,
so I would like to take this opportunity to say
a big thank you to all you lovely people that
leave me such wonderful comments each time
I post something, they are so appreciated.
& to wish you all an amazing Christmas, 
& a very creative new year.

Also a big thank you to Jennie,
for having me on her design team.

Big Hugs, Kat x.
