I used Tim Holtz Distress Stain Vintage Photo to cover up the raw wood on the easel. Instead of spraying the stain I used a paint brush to apply it directly to the wood. Then I set the easel aside to dry.
To create the embellishments for my Count Down to Christmas Chalkboard I used the these stamps- Appliqué Christmas Labels One Clear Stamps, CR-02024 Christmas Stitched with Love Clear Stamps and their coordinating SVG'S - SVG Appliqué Christmas Labels One Cut File Digital Download for CR-02026, SVG Christmas Stitched with Love Vintage Labels Seven Digital Cut File Download for CR-02024
and JustRite JB-04895 Vintage Labels Seven Dies.
I used Spectrum Noir™ Markers to color the images. These are the colors for the snowman-Body IB1, Scarf TB1, TB4, Nose OR2, OR3, Cheeks PP1.For the hat I used GG3, GG5, TB1, LG5, DR4, for the twig arms I used EB3 and for the holly leaves I used LG5, JG5.
To assemble the Christmas embellishment first I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhere the twig arms to the snowman. Next I added 3D Foam Squares to the back of all the cutouts and placed them as shown. Then I added a magnet to the front of the chalkboard and the back of the embellishment. To finish off the Christmas embellishment I added some large red bling to look like berries.
Here is a quick tip--When creating several cutouts to keep for extras put a little X on the backside so when you go to stamp you will know at a quick glance which side is the front.
I used the Offset files for all of the cutouts I created for the project. I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
