Tuesday Tagger - Make a Decoration

Hi Tuesday has come round very quickly, here we are again the first day of another Tuesday Taggers challenge.

With Christmas preparations well underway many people have finished their card making! Not me I confess but getting there. Anyway back to Tuesday Taggers this week we are asking you to make a decoration.

Mine is an Advent calendar, well dial made with a Tando set it is shown here from 3 angles.   Canvas coloured first with B&J and then sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer, Glimmer Mists and Crafty notions.  It looked so good a firm tone was needed for the chipboard and blocks to be added.   While the paint was drying the snowflake and spinner were covered with gilding flakes.   The two tree outers and the dial were coloured with Viva Inca Gold in Lava Red Gold Green and Gold, the reindeer was coloured with the green and given golden antlers.   It was also stamped and gold ep used on the body.  The two tree inners were given a covering of green glitter.   The three blocks (thank you Hilda) were painted with Promarkers, a cake decoration was glued to the front after they were attached to the canvas.   Tando do make a set of Advent numbers but with the dial face partly through a tree they would not work in this case so a set of stickon numbers were coloured with Lava Red and used on the dial.    Lots of gems have been dotted around and glitter use on the block were the dial and tree are glued.   The snowflake is held in place by a band of acetate keeping it proud of the canvas and with added movement.

Lots of different decorations to be seen over at Tuesday Taggers. This is also my last week as part of the Design Team there it has been a lot of fun and I've met many talanted crafters going round seeing all the fabulous responses to each weeks challenges.
Something completely different are looking for projects with numbers this week, there are a few numbers on this piece which is entered in their challenge. Which will also appear on the Tando blog later in the week.
