Hello. Christmas is fast approaching and every year I make these decorations as gifts for teachers and friends.
Today I made these three decorations using stamps from Time For Tea Designs. They are so simple to make and you can use any stamp to make them.
To start I took wooden slices which I purchases from Amazon. I simply stamped each image with Memento Tuxedo black ink straight on to the wood and then coloured with my Faber Castell Polychromo coloured pencils.
And that’s it. I used a white gel pen to add some snow dots and tied some twine to hang them.
Below are decorations I made the past couple of years
I have been a bit quiet lately as I have been finishing some coursework which I have been doing for work. It is now all finished so I can now put my spare time back into crafting! I have also been over on The Little Paper Tree blog with my Design Team makes too.
Last year I made some tree decorations from wood slices and decided to make some more for this year.
I used images from the My Monthly Hero set which you can purchase or subscribe to by visiting the Hero Arts store online.
I started by using my Memento tuxedo black ink to stamp the images onto the wood using an acrylic block.
I masked off the edges of the wood where I didn’t want the ink to go using a bit of masking tape.
I then used Prismacolor pencils to colour the images. They are a little frustrating to use as the break easily and my white has nearly come to an end. I do love them though as the are like butter. So smooth when they go on.
I used a Sakura pick a move on 03 pen to sharpen up the black lines where needed.
Once coloured I used a drill to make a small hole at the top and threaded twine through and knotted it to create the string for hanging.
I hope you like them. Which one is your favourite?
