Christmas Stocking

I had so much fun making this Christmas stocking from the Swirlydoos project add-on!
The stocking is a piece of acrylic from Clear Scraps. I used a piece of patterned paper from Simple Stories to cover the acrylic, then inked the edges to death with a few different brown distress inks, then touched the edges with brown chalk for a definitive edge.
I fell in love with the gold wire trim that came with the kit, and curled it by wrapping it around a marker.

I wanted the snowflakes to have some color, so I used some alcohol ink mixatives in pearl. It gives the snowflakes a wonderful iridescent effect, while leaving the acrylic somewhat transparent. I added pearls and poinsettias to the snowflakes to make them more visible.

Thanks for looking!
