MDF Decorations

Having bought some Xmas decoration shapes from the MDF man and being inspired by the latest edition of craftstamper I was off on another whirlwind mission.
I drew round the shapes onto vintage style BoBunny papers , glued them and inked the edges with Vintage photo.

I then Heat embossed some messages onto the shapes, threaded bakers twine and added some eyelash threads to some of them.
I chose the colour scheme to match my kitchen which is very traditional. The decs will look good hanging from my dresser.

I forgot to mention that I added some very distressed, rusty bells to tie in with the vintage look.

Darcy's Christmas Stamps

Here we are again with the Darcy Appreciation Society.
I bought this set of stamps from Paperartsy as soon as they were available and couldn't wait to have a play.
I decided to stamp the tree onto some vintage style papers that I have had for years. The first one has miniature father christmases all over it. After distress inking the edges and rubbing on some treasure gold I assembled the tree with loads of Pinflair. I thought that the Kraftpaper background set it off nicely.

Then I had another go but this time adding some lace to the edges of the tiers with tape. Really pleased with this one but don't want to part with it or send it to anyone!
