Stamper's Dream Day 3

When I first saw this Three Stockings stamp from the Artful Stamper, I immediately thought of "T'was the Night Before Christmas" and just a very vintage feel. To achieve that look, I stamped on a think off-white muslin. I used Palette ink. Being a hybrid ink, it is perfect for fabric!
The patterned paper is from Memory Box's Christmas brights pad. The pad is full of bright, funky papers, but also papers like this one that can take on a vintage look.
I stitched french knots on the berries. Adventurous. Those infurriating knots are why I stamp and not sew! :) thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:
Patterned paper-Memory Box
Ink-Palette (Landscape)
Twine-Wright's
Lace-Making Memories
Cardstock-Papertrey Ink
Buttons-Basic Grey
