Xmas Card Mingle & Giftie
Hosted by Mary-Beth
Due date: prior Dec 25th

Card: 4.25h x 5.5w

I used a value pack white cardstock for this card. The border on the card was sponged on using golden fluid acrylics in gold's and bronze's using a sea sponge. I did an inner outline border using my technical pen and Dr Martin's bronze acrylic ink. The word "wishes was done with a black micron pen. I adhered the paper sculpture with Golden's soft gel medium filling all the crevices to give support and prevent the item being flattened. 

The paper sculpture was done by making a sculpey mold from an xmas stamp, baked and cooled. I used 4 layers of toilet paper, wetting and coloring the layers. When dry I added more color using all the gold's and bronze's from Twinkles H2o's

Giftie (approx 5"L x 1"W

I started out with a "Sculpey - Premo" malachite slice (brown, white & copper). Made some wire scrolls and glued on colorful rhinestones and added beads and feathers. Added a fishing gadget (safety pin type hook) to attach it to whatever.

The words on the right page are a rubber stamp and color box multi colored stamp pad ink.
