Triptych for Leonie

Hello!

I hope you are having lovely weather where you are?  We went to the beach yesterday to make the most of the sunshine we are having and it seems like another beautiful day today!

However despite this today I am going a bit Christmassy with one of the samples that I made as part of the Leonie Pujol design team for the Entwined Christmas launch last week...

 
 
The triptych is an MDF icon from IndigoBlu, which I fell in love with because it was something a bit different to decorate.  The base was painted with black gesso then dry brushed with some Goldfinger paint.
 
The swirl stamp from the snowflake set was used with gold embossing powder to create a bit of background interest...
 

 
 I stamped the foliage background stamps a number of times onto black card with gold embossing powder and cut these pieces out to make focal points on most of the sides of the icon.  Gold PVA dots were added to them to create extra texture and interest...



The focal point for the inside was the entwined tree die, cut in black card then highlighted with gold Pebeo gilding wax.  The frost was then cut in vintage gold card and again highlighted with the gilding wax...



The sentiments came from the Christmas message ribbon stamps and were stamped and cut to fit.

My plan today is to craft most of the day (apart from preparing food for the children!!) and I hope you have a lovely day whatever you are doing!
