Altered Canvas Christmas Stocking

December is just around the corner and it is time for the 5th Annual Christmas Love Campaign!

The Susan K.Weckesser Design Team is celebrating a Handmade Christmas and will be sharing projects in honor of the campaign.  This Christmas stocking is my offering:
The stocking is from Canvas Corp. and the stamps are by Susan K.Weckesser for Unity.  The house and word "home" are from the Little Haven set and the snowman is from the One of a Kind Winter set.

I used letter stickers from Fancy Pants on the cuff of the stocking and covered them with gesso.

I removed the letter "O" and sprayed with Ferrari Red Chalkboard Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.

When I removed the stickers I outlined the letters with a black pen then added a bow using a ribbon from May Arts.

I used the same technique on the body of the stocking...just with smaller letters!

The house was stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder, then water-colored with soft colors so it would fade into the background.

The snowman appears in the foreground because of the dark outline and bold colors.
