HAPPY CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS

I have been having fun playing with this new set SANTA'S STAR from ANNABELLE STAMPS.
The challenge is to make a Christmas Creation. I did not have the above set so I used SANTA'S STAR instead.

I got this idea to make a fireplace setting for my stockings. I just embossed my red panel then sponged. I then used my square nesties to cut out a square and adhered it to my white card base.

The stockings are adhered at the tops only. To give the appearance of them hanging and give them a 3D look. This card is flat. Yay.

RECIPE:
Stamps:
Santa's Star (Annabelle Stamps)
Paper: Strawberry Jam (Clear Dollar Stammps), Westcoast Hyper White, Strathmore Watercolor paper
Ink: versafine onyx black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Momento Tuxedo Black (from Clear Dollar Stamps),Tombow Markers
Accessories: Cuttlebu, CB Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder, Score Tape (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Ranger Clear Embossing powder, Aqua brush, Heat Tool, Tim Holtz Blender Tool
Techniques: Heat Embossing, Dry Embossing, Watercoloring with Markers

I'm way behind with comments as I'm interstate at the moment and getting on the web is a bit painful!
