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.
