Handy Guy Stocking

Can you believe it is December already? where does the time go? and speaking of time flying, The Two Paper Diva's online store will close on Dec 15th. So between now and then everything in the store is marked at 50% off through their store front. You can read the details on the store blog here.
This particular card the Stocking is from the Holiday Greetings set, it was paper pieced into this card the blue part is colored with some Sparkle noir glitter pens ( I did dilute that with water in a paint well) because, what I have found with those brush tip markers is they leak and they don't do it in drips they do it in huge start over again from scratch puddles... so, I drip some into a little plastic well and then pick up the colors with an aqua brush. ( and that keeps my fingers slightly cleaner too) 
The sentiment and the nail are from the You are a handy guy set. I did deliberately stamp the nail off set so it could be "hung" with the scrappers floss, when I read that sentiment it tends to make me think of duck tape and bailing wire lol. So, I did add some clear gelly roll glaze pen to the nail image too.

The toe, heel and cuff on this stocking were colored with a prisma pencils real quick after the blue sparkle was paper pieced on. The inks these were stamped with are Versafine Onyx Black. the Plaid printed paper is from Lawn Fawns winter pad and this finished out at 5" square in real life. Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!
