Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
Oh, there's so much excitement in my house today.
In September I made a Christmas stocking to enter into Magnolia Ink's magazine contest and guess what? When the magazine arrived this morning I saw that I had won! Yes.................. I am a winner!
I am so thrilled to have been picked.
It's the little things in life that make me happy and this really has. Lol!!!
Here is my stocking.
I have coloured Tilda With Little Rudolf with Polychromos pencils and cut around the image.
The stocking template is from Sandra's Scrapshop.
I have used Woodware recycled card to make the stocking base and the papers are Maja Design
"It's Christmas Time."
I used shabby white frantage from Live & Love Crafts onto Noor Designs "Winter Wishes" snowflake die cuts and placed them between the papers.
I inked the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz "tea dye" distress ink.
The pretty lace is from The Ribbon Girl
The slender firs and snowflakes are Magnolia Doohickey dies.
I have inked around the edges of the slender firs with tea dye distress ink and sprayed them with Crafters Companion Spray & Sparkle and added some Rangers icicle stickles to give snow effect.
I have frantaged the snowflakes with shabby white embossing enamel and place a 5mm white pearl onto each of them. The pearls are form The Ribbon Girl
I have hung the gold jingle bells from Cuddly Buddly with DMC N0 8 white cotton Perle.
I made the bow with 15mm white satin edged organza ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons and tied 2 jingle bells to the centre. The 15mm white rose above the bells is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Once I had placed Tilda With Little Rudolf onto the centre of the card with sticky pads I added 3mm pearls randomly around the scene.
Inside the card is decorated
I used Sizzix Bigz Tattered Poinsettia die cuts and inked the edges with tea dye distress ink. I coated the leaves with Ranger glossy accents and sprinkled them with Twinklets Diamomd Dust.
I coloured the stamens in the centre with a holly green Promarker.

I have added ArtDeco glamour dust to Tilda's hat trim. pom~pom, waistcoat and trim on her dress.
I dotted Tilda and Rudolf's cheeks with an Inkssentials white opaque pen.
Proud as punch!!!
Enjoy the weekend.
