Hi everyone - well typical bank holiday weather here so crafting here I come! Hope you enjoy your long weekend whatever you're doing.
The word for today over on One Word Wonder Facebook page is Christmas. Well I've been making cards for my DT over on Christmas Fun so decided to make an ornament.
I had some Indigoblu MDF Christmas bauble shapes so picked one of those.
I covered the shape with white gesso which I dried with my heat tool as I'm too impatient! I then gave it a coat of DecoArt Americana acrylic paint in burnt umber, dried again then applied a thin coat of DecoArt Americana weathered wood crackle medium. Once this had dried applied a final coat of DecoArt Americana acrylic in snow white, dried with heat gun & watched it crackle!
I stamped the sentiment ( a freebie Kaisercraft clear stamp from Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine) using barn door Distress Ink & distressed the edges with this too. Used a little Rub'n'Buff in gold leaf around the edges & across the crackled area.
I found some Hobbycraft shapes & a gold bow in my stash. Finished off with a gold ribbon for hanging.
Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by,
