Morning everyone, here is my DT post this morning for Kanban, with something a little bit different. Kanban's new retail division Crafted By You are going to be having these lovely wooden shapes to buy from the website when it is up and running , which shouldn't be much longer. I have decorated some to show you what can be done with them.
I painted the stars with gold metallic paint and used Victoriana Embellishments to decorate them PCT19212 and also some ribbon.
These large hearts come plain with a lovely red gingham ribbon. I have painted one red and then used some Britannia hearts 900168 to decorate it. The second heart I took two pieces of co-ordinating papers from the Bloomsbury pad, then I tore it up and then stuck it to the heart for a decoupage or deco patch effect. I then die cut a swirl from Retro Spots Lime CRD9719, and then used a flower from the Victoriana Lace sheet PCT1894, and on the other side I used a Victoriana Lace Butterfly PCT1891. I also changed the ribbon to match.
For these two stars I painted one with the gold metallic paint, and then sanded it down slightly so the wood showed through, and then added die cut stars and snowflakes from gold mirri. The second one I inked and then decorated it with a Father Christmas Topper 900420 and some gold snowflakes.
Lastly the tree, which I inked up and then used a border punch with some mirri card , then I punched some small snowflakes from Christmas red card 900106 and Christmas Holly Green 900367. I then finished it with some ribbon tied round the trunk and a star at the top.
I hope you like them and thank you for looking xxx
