Wow it's December already, so hands up, who's ready for Christmas? - no me neither lol. Over at Country View Crafts the challenge this month is Nostalgic Christmas, and here's what I
These are just ceramic tiles painted with Fresco Paints, Distress Inks and stamped and stencilled.
This is a 6 x 6 tile that's been gessoed then painted with Snowflake Fresco Paint. I then stencilled through with various shades of Stickles then stamped and embossed the Season's Greetings from the Lin Brown Eclectia plate. This has then been sealed with spray varnish.
This one is a 4x4 tile, that's been painted with Vanilla. I then stencilled through the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil with Festive Berries Distress Ink. The Christmas tree is from the ELB11 plate.
The gold around the edge is the border stamp from the Lynne Perrella
LPC17 plate. It's been stamped and embossed in gold, and the spray varnish has made it flake a little bit which I quite like the look of. I just need to stop messing with it now lol.
This is another 4x4, so just right for my Christmas coffee cup. My Stampotique snowman has been embossed with Frantage EP, and the snowflake is from the Darcy04 set, and the sentiment from ELB11 again. I love how all these different stamp sets work together so well.
So what makes for a nostalgic Christmas for you? I'm lucky enough to have always spent mine with family, and that really is what Christmas means to me (it's even better when family comes with chocolate lol)
I hope you join in with our challenge, and I will see you later in the month with the second of my projects.
Thanks very much for looking x
