Christmas Ornament Exchange

Good Morning,

We had a Christmas Ornament Exchange over at a stamping friends last week. We were to make an ornament, then bring it over. We put numbers in a bowl, and whoever got the highest number got to pick out of all the ornaments, and tell why they picked that specific ornament. At the end each person had to tell which ornament they made. It was alot of fun! This is the ornament I made for the exchange. Catherine kindly took a picture of it when she got home, because I forgot! lol Thank you Catherine!

I used chipboard ornaments from Basic Grey. The backside is swiped with versamark ink, then I used pearl lustre embossing powder on it. On the front I glued on a piece of patterned paper. Stamped my angel image on white c/s, then coloured it in with Copic Markers. I went over parts of it with Spica Glitter Pens as well. I then distressed her with distress inks. Then I cut her out and curved her wings with my fingers and mounted her on the ornament. The edges of the ornament are also distressed with distress inks.
I also made another type of ornament, but I can't share it with you just yet!

I had so much fun making this and it didn't take long at all! Half hour tops! I have some more ready to embellish, so I best get busy! Christmas is approaching very fast!

Have a wonderful day!
