This year I chose a Hero Arts cling mount stamp called Hanging Christmas Ornaments. It was totally inspired by a card that Bernice gave me when she took my last copic class at Pickle. Hers was done in more traditional holiday colours but I knew that mom would love greens, gold and bronze and of course lots of glitter.
I started with a hot press watercolor paper because it is smooth and embossed my image in gold. Then I coloured the ornaments with tombow markers and softened it off with wet paintbrush. Pretty quick to do and it actually took me less time than I had originally thought. Then I added lots of superfine Glitter Ritz glitter and ranger glossy accents on the smaller ornaments. I kept everything else real simple because I had almost 30 of these to make so time was critical and I didn't want to distract from the image. I'm undecided on the bow. I only have it on this one and not sure if I'm gonna put it on the rest of them. I actually think I like it without the ribbon better.
That's it for today! My hand is a little cramped from glueing for the last couple hours and I think I need to go take a long hot shower. Then I'll be ready to work on my challenge card for Friday.
Have a great day!
