Vintage Bauble

The theme at Country View Crafts Challenges this month is Nostalgic Christmas and this got me thinking nostalgically...! When I was a child we would make Christmas decorations for the tree and I thought I might make one for our tree this year. 
The base is an Art Part painted white. I painted it white and then, when dry, added a layer of Vintage Photo Distress Stain. This makes a lovely chalky background but it was a little dark so removed some of it with a baby wipe. I then, through a Dylusions Mask, added Vintage Photo Distress Ink and dried it. 
I added a stamped wreath and a little sparkle with a little Metallic Glaze paint! The ribbon is a little sari fabric and I will retie the bauble on the tree when it has been chosen from the Christmas tree shop! We have a tradition in our house  that my husband takes my son to buy a tree that is the same height as our son and then my daughter and I decorate it! Funny what traditions you have isn't it?! Thank you for popping over and visiting me - if you have a moment pop over and see what my amazing team mates have made this month.

what a gorgeous bauble for the tree - I am guessing it will be getting quite a large one by now!
