TEAM TRAINING CHRISTMAS SWAP

Hi all,

Following on from yesterday's post about swaps from this week's team training session, here is my swap project for the Christmas group that I was part of...

PEGS!! 

I always enjoy taking a normal household object and adding a touch of Stampin' Up! to make it that bit more special.  Pegs are a great item to decorate as they make for great holders for different things.

I have a washing line in my craft room that showcases special cards that I have been sent or ones I have made that I just can't bear to part with, and they look a lot more fancy when they have been decorated!


I have started by covering each flat side of the pegs with a strip of DSP and to that, I have added a small banner of Gold Glimmer Paper. 

For the stamping, I have coloured the image in using Stampin' Blends markers and once dry, I have painted over with the new Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  This works great when using an Aqua Painter and the sparkle is just lovely!  I have added a spritz of ink across the image also!


I used these pegs to secure the Striped Treat Bags that I filled with sweeties to give the recipient something extra!
