Stockings from Narnia

This set is simply called Christmas Stockings, but I definitely think you might see one of these hanging over Mr Tumnus’ fire place or maybe in the Beaver’s lodge. I have watercoloured two of the stockings from the set of three digital stamp my daughter designed and uploaded to her etsy store, Echidna Studios.

I printed the image on watercolour paper then used Sennelier watercolours paints and a gold gel pen to fill in the design. I took a little more time on the stocking above painting all the curly fronds whereas for the one below I blended a blue and a green paint to fill the patterned stocking.

I attached both stockings to embossing folders, one with pine needles, the other bricks. I am very taken with embossing folders at present both for creating backgrounds and for making my own gel printing texture plates.

The handy dandy sentiments are from Taylored Expressions. At the beginning of my Christmas card making season I stamped the one stamp of 18 sentiments in a range of colours, cut them with the matching die and kept them in a little box which I have been able to reach into over and over. These two are among my last few Christmas cards but there will be more winter themed cards and Christmas thank you cards to come. My contents of my craft room are still spread around the house but I am making progress putting it back together!

    Beautifully painted and I can see how fussy it must have been to paint around the design. What a talented daughter you have and I do wish her the best with her store. Love the images of these stockings.

    Your coloring makes this stocking look like a real one hanging there.
    Now I need to pay attention to Narnia to find the stocking.
    Beautiful job.

    The stockings are beautiful Heather. I am sure your daughter is delighted. What a team you make. I am so pleased to read that the contents of your craft room are spread around the house, needing to be put away : I thought it was just me in that situation 🙂 Best wishes for the Christmas Season Heather. Karen ♥
