Anything But a Card Challenge #7

Another Challenge is underway at Anything But A Card, and I have a cute little gift idea for Christmas to share with you which uses my Gelatos from Faber Castell, Stamps from The Unity Stamp Co, and Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest.



Its a cute little wooden wall hanging.  I have applied the Gelatos to the outer edges of the Wood with a Water Brush this colors the wood but still allows the woodgrain to show through.  I have cut a piece of white cardstock to the size of the front panel of the wooden plaque and stamped and embossed my image and sentiment in black.  Then taking three colors of Gelatos I have watercolored across the background.  To finish I have added some Turquoise Dew Drops to the outer edge using some Gel Medium which I have also used to seal my project.

The rest of the Team have also made some wonderful projects with Christmas in mind so be sure to check them all out.
