Christmas Ornament ......

... Hi!  It's time for our new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Louise is hosting our fifth, and last Saturday in March.  As we have an extra Saturday in March, our challenge is a bit different.  This week we would like to see ANYTHING, but not a Card, ATC or Tag. 


I made an ornament for my Christmas tree.


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Ornate Ornaments, Vintage Ornaments
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Rich Razzleberry
Dies: Spellbinders - 2010 Heirloom Ornaments (S4-283) #5
Accessories: Twinkling H2Os - Wild Blueberry, Blue Flame; Silver embossing powder, thread and beads

I stamped the ornament five times in Versamark and heat embossed all the images with silver powder and then cut them out with the matching Spellbinder die.  I used two shades of blue twinkling H2O to paint the ornament and finished each panel by stamping the lovely purple star burst.  I scored each ornament down the centre and gently folded in half.  To give some weight to the ornament I added a tassel made of beads from my stash.  I used super strong double sided tape to glue each side together. 

Here are a couple of close up views of the ornament.


That's all for now.  I do hope you have a super Easter break.  I'll be back on Tuesday.

A real stunner with the purple star burst drawing the eye beautifully & I love the way you picked up the purple with your beads. The silver & blue are lovely & unusual & I can imagine this on a snow laden green tree.
Easter Greetings
