City Crafter ... Winter White

Good morning ...
Our lovely Kirsty is setting the challenge for us this week at City Crafter ... and keeping in with the winter theme, she has challenged us to make a card or project having the main colour as white
this is her lovely inspirational photo


... and the perfect time to make my little stocking for the mantle ...


This is a chipboard stocking from a pack I bought last year...
I painted it first with white acrylic and then covered it in Core'dination pure white CS which I added a generous amount of glitter too 


... added some snowflakes and rhinestones ...


cut some felt ... and I'm not sure if you can see ... I used a little wire brush on the felt ... it makes it really fluffy ... all that was needed now was some ribbon,  a few crystal drops and a sprig of holly


... and we're good to go!

This week we are lucky to have Sylvia Nelson  Guest designing once again and sweet Stella sponsoring for us... Don't say I told you but ... I happen to know that Stella has created something really special for the winner this week too!  
So I hope you will hop on over to the blog and check out the rest of the DT work and if you need a little break from all those Christmas preparations ... then why not take a little time to join us this week... we'll be so happy to see you ...

Till soon

~ Ros ~
