Hand Made for TioT's

There is a new challenge theme today over at Try it on Tuesdays
called..........Hand made by you.

My hand made  example is a Christmas card.
There are some rules this time and we are not allowed
..................... to use digi's or shop bought embellishments.
The team have made some fantastic examples
 and I hope you will pop over for all the details and to see what they made.

This is the first stage of my card,
a piece of packaging  and a hand drawn shape of a wonky star.

Some of the layer torn away to  show the corrugated part. 
You can also see the  music tissue
 that will also be used. . 

The beginnings of the base layer. was a piece of parcel  paper, covered with white gesso.
I did use an embossing folder for texture,
then the pieces of serviette were stuck down.
I made a few pieces like this, they are useful as base layers.

The stars were added using a stencil,
as more texture was needed.,
and another coat of gesso.

This is the best close up photo I could get of the base and star.

The star was also coated with gesso , with  some gold and  silver  gilding wax smeared onto the raised surfaces, just like the base layer .

The ribbon, stencil, embossing folder paints etc.  have all been in my stash for a very long time, so nothing new was purchased to make this card.
Layer papers had the blunt scissor treatment to rough up the edges.

Thank you for calling in to see me today,
you are most welcome.
