Stars and Christmas

What glorious weather we are enjoying this September I just love an Indian Summer sets you up for winter. I keep hearing we are set for the worst winter for 40 years (shiver, better get my thermals at the ready LOL). Anyway weather report over. all the talk of winter, shapes with more than 4 corners at JFF and Christmas at the Craft Room Challenge I went for a dual piece of 3 stars (more than 4 corners) and Christmas themed hanging.
I cut 3 stars from chipboard and painted the top star in rouge acrylic paint and rubbed metallic red, gold and green into it and then embossed a swirl in a green and added my Victorian scraps Father Christmas, the second star I coloured resist paste with gold paint and pushed it through a template once set I painted in off white and then rubbed with the same metallic stamped with a Christmas theme stamps. The 3rd star is embossed with silver and green (it looks dark as I am a very bad photographer) and I stamped a swirl into it I then filled in the swirl with Icicles stickles. I also stickled Father Christmas. I am entering this in JFF and Craft Room Challenge.

PS I also did a little tag for JFF (tags have more than 4 corners don't they?)

Thanks for stopping and looking. Hugs Sandra XX
