Sunday Stampers theme is birds - I might be stretching it just a bit to include this, but there IS a bird on it! I got the idea for the mitten from one I saw on Pinterest that was done by Betsy Veldman. I loved this idea so much and thought the Frosty stamp from Artistic Outpost's Frosty and Friends collection would be perfect for it.
The mitten pattern came from MME Designs (thank you!). I traced it onto cream felt, cut two pieces and stitched them together.
Broken China and Barn Door and Distress ink and a water brush. I cut it out and inked the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress ink. He's adhered to the mitten with Elmer's Craft Glue.
The frame was cut from chipboard using Tim's Tag and Bookplates die. I used an Aqua Paint Dabber to paint it and then went over it with a Snow Cap Dabber to give it a frosty feel. When the paint dried, I covered the frame with a thick layer of Rock Candy Stickles. I also added bits of chunky glitter here and there.
You might notice his fluffy looking ear muff - it's Sparkly Fluff! I love the extra sparkle and dimension it gives the piece. Below you'll find a tutorial on how to tint white Fluff using Distress Stain. Now, you can match it to any project!
Ranger Distress Stain in desired color(s), Sparkly Fluff - Sugar (white), craft stick, plastic palette or something similar (I like to reuse lids from plastic containers - they are perfect for corralling the fluff!).
Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great week!
