For the challenge this month I created a Christmas Wall Hanging.To create the wall hanging I used the Crafty Secrets Seasons Greetings Clear Art Stamp Set and the Crafty Secrets Merry Christmas Creative Scraps. I also used the Grand Calibur™ and LF-190 Grand Labels Four from Spellbinders™ to create the base for the wall hanging. To start I stamped the image of the adorable little girl using Rich Cocoa ink. I used Simply Smooth White Cardstock. Next I added color using Copic markers. I used three shades of green for the holly.Then I colored the berries.For the coat and hat I used a light pink, a medium rose colors and a deep rose color.Next I colored the face and arm and I used a little bit of blush color to give her cheeks a little pink color.I colored the hair a golden brown.I used two shades to color her boots.Lastly a touch of blue for the eyes and pink for the lips. I used the S4-294 Beaded Ovals die #4 and S4-303 Crowned Ovals die #4 to make the oval die cuts. Using Antique Linen ink I left the cardstock in the die templates and inked through using the die template as a stencil. I layered the two pieces together using 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™.The printed image is from the Christmas Creative Scraps and I used the Grand Calibur™ and LF-190 Grand Labels Four die #4 to cut/emboss the image. Then I added some color to the image using Copic markers.I made a bow to use on the bottom and then I lightly misted it with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. I also used the LF-190 Grand Labels Four dies # 5, 6 to create a mat and then I layered all of the pieces. Here is a close up of the Santa. I colored the Santa hat, added so Liquid Applique` and then some glitter. I also used the postcard image from the Merry Christmas Creative Scraps and distressed the edges. The image of the little girl was colored with Copic markers and then I added Liquid Applique` and glitter. I also added tiny pearls. I added some color to the boy and girl and then added Liquid Applique` and glitter to the area with snow. I added snowflake buttons (with the backs removed) and pink rhinestones on the top. To dress up the bottom half I used some Christmas greens, glittered fern and white berries with a bow.
