CHRISTMAS SLEIGH

ooo Christmas is coming!!!!!  I love this time of the year when we start our Christmas crafting...that is before we get fed up with it all haha!  Its Karen here and I have been doing lots of painting, stamping & embossing & a little sewing on this...


This gorgeous 3D SLEIGH is part of the CHRISTMAS 2010 COLLECTION.  Well, I had all sorts of plans for this one ...funny how things work out.  I was going to really go to town with embellishments but in the end decided that I liked the shape too much to detract from it!  It has been painted with 2 thin layers of antique white acrylic paint. ( TIP:  don't overload with paint or paper or the pieces won't fit together.  Its a lovely snug fit! )  I stamped all over with snowflakes & gold embossed them before adding my crackle glaze to 'age' it.  I couldn't resist making a 'blanket' to go inside...

I shall probably put nuts in this one at Christmas.  If you would love to have one of these then take a look HERE! for the STOCKISTS.  Thank you for taking a look today, Please leave a message to say that you have been by, HUGS XXX
