Christmas Stockings

My poor little blog has been neglected of late!  I am so sorry dear readers and I hope to have the situation remedied soon.  In the meantime, here is one of the few holiday projects I mustered up this season, this time made for Alpha Stamps.

I used gilders paste in white to add a sprinkle of highlights on my star, flowers and the edge of the stocking.

I love how adding just a bit of the paste changes the tones of the metal.

On this stocking I added UTEE to Tim Holtz's metal numerals.  A few flecks of black made them look a bit vintage.

Here the image is an old embossed Santa from Dresden scrap.  I backed it with burlap to add a layer of texture.

Merry Christmas to all of my faithful readers!




  1. It's a delightful Chritmas stocking.

  2. You should be the spokesmodel for gilder's paste!

  3. I love how the gilders paste gave the flowers a frosted look. Just right for a white Christmas.

  4. Beautiful work, as always, Rhea. Thanks for sharing it.
