Christmas Wishes



Hi Everyone,
I'm up on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog with a Christmas piece that could be a wallhanging or an ornament.  
I started with a canvas tag and added Distress Inks in pretty much every shade of green.  
Once the ink was dry I added the stars using one of the new Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Holiday stencils and Festive Berries Distress Ink. 

The house is the Mini House Shadowbox 1 from Gypsy Soul.  I love these teeny houses and they come in four different sizes.  I covered the house inside and out with paper from the new Tim Holtz Christmas pad and then embossed the front edges using Emerald Creek Hammered Metal. 


A tiny bottle brush tree and deer were popped in there. The mirrored star and deer are covered with Mushroom alcohol ink.  Mica snow was added to the roof and the bottom of the house.  A vintage bingo marker gives that extra Christmas magic.  
I covered the Large Swirl Medallion from Gypsy Soul with Emerald Creek embossing powder in Charred Gold and then glued the house in the center.  The medallion was then glued to the canvas tag.  Look at how fine the cuts are on this thing! I love this medallion.  

A Tim Holtz rub on was added to the top and the piece is done! 
A few glamour shots for you. 


I hope you enjoy!
