Hi everyone, I hope that your holidays were wonderful! Here is my take on
Santa's Christmas delivery from a balloon with a steampunk twist.
I took a 12 x 12 canvas and painted the sides and border a light brown. I used Mod Podge to seal the paint and adhere the Bo-Bunny: Silver and Gold - Festivities paper. The compass is from Gina's Designs and painted gold. It looked like it was printed on the paper so I raised it for dimension.
I used Sparkling H20's Crystal Green on the raw chipboard and got an iridescent effect on the trees. I stamped a jingle bells music stamp on the trees and finished the edges with Stickles - Pantina. I placed chipboard under the trees at different thicknesses to create a 3D look. I hand drew Santa, colored him with Copic markers and used a snow writer on his coat and hat. The chipboard basket was colored with Sparkling H20's and Bo-Bunny paper. The list was an old stamp on tan paper and distressed with brown ink.
Gina's Designs Mini Display Tray -Hot Air Balloon tops the canvas on a cardboard "hinge". I used the Sparkling H20's on the outside of the balloon. Bo-Bunny - Silver and Gold paper line was used on the whole balloon. I used Tim Holtz rosette die by Sizzix under the clock face and hands, and a super small one was used as a gear. A fence from Gina's Beach Shape Set was cut down to make a ladder for the elf. Gina's gears were painted with silver, gold and bronze. The peppermint was painted white, red and distressed with brown ink to give it a gear look. I used a Gina's Design Type Writer Key "25" as gear. The snowflake was daubed with Stickles - Icicle, Gold and Pantina. The Bo-Bunny - Elf Magic paper elves were fussy cut out and the magic ticket was punched out using an EK Success Punch. Gina's flourishes miniatures were painted black and gold. The dream in a circle is new for Gina's Design and will be available in the store in 2015!
