IndigoBlu challenge 34 - Winter Blues

Here is a link to the IndigoBlu current challenge - Winter Blues

I was fortunate to be selected at random to win a prize from a recent IndigoBlu challenge. The prize was my own choice from their extensive stamp range. Another benefit is that I was asked to provide a project as inspiration for the new challenge starting today - Winter Blues. I decided my project would be for Christmas. The colours would be just right to decorate a small tree for my dining room, recently decorated in blues.

I chose to decorate Christmas MDF shapes purchased from IndigoBlu. Firstly I primed both sides of the shapes with white gesso. Then I painted them with IndigoBlu cottage paints in pantry white, grandma's teacup and park lane.  I also used the paints in Snow White, and sleeping beauty for over stamping.

The stamps I used are Snow Globe, Twinkle Star and Snowflake Lace.

I also used texture paste, glitter, gems and ribbon from my stash.

I have decorated both sides of each shape so if they spin round on the tree they will look the same.

I hope my project inspires you to take part in this challenge.

Bye for now, Wanda
