Christmas Countdown 2018 - Day 11

Hi everyone 
We've got a fabulously festive kit launching today. Just perfect for you to create a stunning 3D Christmas themed piece of home decor. 
The kit contains, one 3D Christmas tree and stand (H:12" W: 11"), one bauble, one 50ml gold metallic paint and one A4 Christmas Robin rice paper. 
I'm sure you can think of oodles of ways to decorate the tree and bauble.  Here's how our sample came together: 

Step 1 - paint both sides of the tree and stand with gold paint.  Leave to dry. 

Step 2 -choose a stencil and use texture paste to add raised detail to the tree.  Heat set or leave to air dry. 

Step 3 - paint over the texture paste with gold paint.  Leave to dry.

Step 4 - working on one side at a time cover the star with glossy accents and then cover with glitter.  Leave to dry before repeating on the other side of the star. 

Step 5 - paint a couple of layers of white acrylic paint inside the back half of the bauble.  Leave to dry completely.   Cut a holly sprig from the rice paper and stick top left in the back of the bauble.  Use glossy accents to stick faux snow the the lower section. 

Step 6 - Cut a holly leaf and robin out of the rice paper.  Stick to the front of the centre section of the bauble.  Add red dots of Perfect Pearls/Stickles for berries, dots of glossy accents sprinkled with glitter around the top of the robin and a little faux snow by his feet.  Finish off with a Perfect Pearl/Stickles snail trail around the edge. Leave to dry.

Step 7 - Cut a few more holly leaves and berries from the rice paper and stick inside the lower section of the bauble front.  Leave to dry.

Step 8 - Cover the back of the bauble with the lighter area of the rice paper, easing the edges down around the curve of the bauble.  Leave to dry.

Step 9 - assemble the bauble, thread a ribbon through the top and pipe a decorative edge over the joint to seal it.  Hang up and leave to dry.  You could stick a narrow ribbon around the edge as an alternative. 

Hand the bauble from the hook on the Christmas Tree, stand back and admire your work :-)

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu
