Pink Rudolph -For Creative Expressions

Morning all!
Today I'm sharing my latest project for Creative Expressions ..... a quirky, painty Christmas hanging!
Something a little different, not your usual Christmas colours or sentiment!
I started off by creating a painty background on a piece of cardstock, using Waterfall , Grape and Raspberry Eco Green paint. Bit of White in there too! I stamped the snowflake and the holly from the featured stamp plate ( Tim Holtz Christmas Time ) onto the background...
and I also used the Chicken Wire Stamp by Sam Poole to create a little more texture..

As well as the main background, I also created a painty rectangle the same way. I stamped the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from the featured stamp set onto white card, cut it out then adhered it to this rectangle. This becomes the hanging part of the piece...
Rudolph himself was also stamped and cut out, then I added a little Pink Stickles to his nose!
The words were computer generated by me, then cut out and added to the background......
To join the main piece to the sentiment panel, I punched holes in the cardstock. I threaded wire through the holes, then twisted it around itself to secure...
To create the hanger at the top, a longer piece of wire was threaded through punched holes. I twisted the ends of the wire around a pencil to create a coil. This not only looks good, but stops the wire from going back through the holes and coming undone.
So there you have it..... Bit of a fun project for me to finish on with this stamp set!
 Be sure to check back next Thursday for another creation using a whole new set of fab stamps!!
