Christmas Stocking





I must say right off the bat that this card was a labor of love, but I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  This Vintage Christmas Stocking from Pattie's Creations could be embellished and brought to life in lots of ways, but I chose to paper piece the entire thing.  It wasn't hard, just a bit time consuming - making sure I was gluing the correct (small) piece to the proper area.

After all my pieces were in place, I added Perfect Pearls to each intersection and real jingle bells.  I also pop dotted it from the background.  I tried to add a few other embellishments to it, but I decided that everything else detracted from the image, which is gorgeous even in black and white.


I did use a couple of Copic markers to color the holly leaves in (G16, G19, G28) and added ruby colored gems for the berries.  Be sure to check back Friday for the next Pattie's Creations Challenge.  It's going to be a fun one (and easy).

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Stamps R Us (Bling it on); Bunny Zoe's Crafts (Anything Christmas with Pearls); Phindy's Place (Christmas cards); Paper Creations Ink (Christmas theme)
