Winter Sparkles and Mittens


I have used the cutest little stamp set called Winter Sparkles from Red Rubber Designs to enhance my rather primitive home-made mittens. Theses would be a warm, nostalgic addition to a Christmas tree or would also work nicely as a package adornment.

Hear no Snow!


See no Snow!


Taste no Snow!



The images are stamped on unbleached muslin and lightly colored with Primsacolor pencils. I purposely wanted the colors muted to look a little more vintage. The ribbon was sprayed with pinecone and silver sprays by Tattered Angels. I embellished with small glittered snowflakes centered with Swarovski crystals. Mittens were lightly brushed with antique glass glitter.
