Good evening Followers, Friends and Visitors,
Hope you've had a good day whatever you have been doing. Hubby and I have spent the day weeding in our fruit garden. When we went into the garden we were greeted by a half a dozen blackbirds, flying out from inbetween the strawberries and gooseberries lol! Time to put up our fruit nets me thinks lol! and that was a bundle of fun, with the wind lol!!! Never mind, we managed in the end, after a frustrating couple of hours.
On to tonight's creation, another Santa sleigh. Paint all MDF parts with two layers of blue Starlight Paint. Take some white card and the snowflake embossing folder and emboss. Paint this with Moss Green MDF Paint, then a thin layer of the Lagoon MDF Paint. Rub some Blue Moonstone Sparkle Medium over the raised design. Leave to dry. From this, cut out two side shapes for the sleigh and glue in place, Add more Sparkle Medium around the edges.
Cover some white card with Diamond Sparkle Medium and leave to dry. When dry ,die-cut two of each
snowflake using the Tattered Lace dies. Glue these to both sides of the sleigh. Glue some pearls to the top edges of the back and front of the sleigh, using Magi-bond glue.
Fix a piece of silk ivy and silver ribbon to the inside of the sleigh. Make some boxes and lids from white card, coloured with Blue, White gold, Menthol and Orange oxidation Starlight Paints. Colour one piece of card using the hessian stencil, colouring with the Lagoon and Cyclone MDF Paints and Orange oxidation Starlight Paint and make another box and lid.
Make another box using snowflake flurry patterned card.
Paint a piece of white card and paint with the White gold Starlight Paint. Using the X-cut alphabet die, die-cut HO HO HO and glue these letters to the back of the sleigh.
Spread silver Sparkle Medium over a flourish from the Art Cutz Butterfly set and leave to dry. When dry, paint over the top of the Sparkle Medium with the Menthol Starlight Paint. Glue this to the front of the sleigh.
Well, that's it finished. This will make a lovely Christmas decoration or could be a focal point of your Christmas dinner table. Before we know it, it will be Christmas lol!
