Last year when everything Christmas was on clearance I stocked up on cheap wooden items. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them and frankly I hate sanding so it probably wasn't the best purchase. They are made of such cheap wood and the edges drive me nuts-o. I won't be purchasing anymore but I have to use up what I have. I covered both sides with Basic Grey's Wassail collection. I love the colors with the brown and red as well as the simple design that looks fabulous on my two reindeer.
I gave Rudolph a red rhinestone nose. How divine! Rudolph's paper has large swirls and smaller highlight dots that I enhanced by adding pearls in several different sizes to correspond to the size of the actual dot. I inked the entire piece with Pumice Stone Distress and added Martha Stewart Fine Glitter in White Gold-my favorite color- to the hooves, inner ear and antlers.
Dancer is dressed in a Toile pattern that I highlighted with pale apricot rhinestone. He also got the glitter treatment with the White-Gold and was inked with Pumice Stone.
Santa's sleigh is all ready for the trip. I adore the red paper that I used. The edges are inked with Fire Brick Distress. The sleigh's runners are glittered with Martha Stewart Fine Glitter in Gold.
