My challenge for Magnolis-licious Challenge Blog

Hello!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas?!!
Can you believe it is going to be 2010 in a few days. Where in the world did that DECADE GO??

I am later than I intended to be - but not too late for the Challenge over on Magnolia-licious Challenge blog! I haven't even had a chance to look at the other entries yet. But will do so as soon as I have posted this card.
I guess I was tired cause I found it hard to come up with a shape - LOL...... So silly - I know!
In the end I made a simple Christmas stocking. I folded my white card stock in half and cut out the shape. The card is attached in two places: the cuff and a bit of the heel. I felt it would be safer that way than in just one place. I used left over design paper I had on hand and some left over pink that matched. I used my new 'Sparkling Tilda' stamp - I absolutely LOVE the sparkling head band :o)

I glued my design paper onto the white card stock and then glued the cuff, heel and toe onto the design paper.I used SU Regal Rose Ink to darken the edges of the DP. I then hand stitched the whole stocking with double hand embroidery thread.
I found in my stash some rub on's I had never used they were sticky ones that you have to put something over once they are attached. So I put SU Dazzling Diamonds over them. They are the 'Joy to the World" sentiment as well as the two snowflakes on heel and toe. I also added a dark pink rhinestone to the centre of the two snowflakes. I used 'Sookwang' tape that I cut very thin to add the pompom ribbon to the bottom of the cuff. It wanted to fray a lot, so I gently dipped each cut end into Crystal Laquer to stop that. I coloured my beautiful Tilda with Copics. Put ' Stardust' Glitter Ritz on her headband thickly as I wanted it to be 3 dimensional. I also put Dazzling Diamonds on her wings that had been lightly coloured with BGOOOO first. She is attached also with Sookwang tape. And looks over the top of the stocking. Here are some further pictures to hopefully show you the glitter on the rub on's.





Sorry for taking so many pictures! With my photo-editing program not working I am never sure what you are going to be able to see.
This was a fun project and I thank Cheryl Rowley for thinking of this one.
Keep well - keep safe - Love Candy
