In my surprise package I received a wooden Christmas Stocking and some Red Diamond Mesh so I decided to make an ornament.  I covered the front and back of the main stocking shape with designer paper, using brushable glue.  I sanded the edges so it fit exactly.



Then I ran strips of 1/8” Tear-ific tape around the edge.  I covered this with Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder and heat set.  I wanted the gold to extend onto the designer paper so I used the Distressed Embossing Technique and added more of the Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder.  Then, still using 1/8" Tear-ific Tape, I added strips of the Red Diamond Mesh.



For the top section, after covering the back with the designer paper and adding the embossing powder around the edges with Tear-ific Tape, I added white embossing paste.  I tapped on it lightly to give it extra texture and then covered it with Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft.  I let this dry and then gently used the Distressed Embossing Technique to add a little more Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder around the top edges of the embossing paste.  I adhered this piece to the top of the stocking, tucking ribbon in between to use as a hanger.

The next stop on our blog hop is Eret.  Head on over, but don't forget to leave a comment.  Thank you for hopping by.
