Hello crafty ones, there is an amazing challenge going on over at inkyimpressions. Not only is the challenge awesome but one of the winners will be choosen for their Design Team.. I created this Christmas Ornament for the challenge....
ornament shaped chipboard pieces...
papers, patterned and plain.
embellies of all kinds.
I started with a shaped ornament from chipboard, and covered the backs and fronts in matching papers with a glue stick. Then stamped the front cover in black ink and then took my gold gel pen and only hi-lighted certain parts of the stamped image. Used spell binders for all the matting on the front cover.
For the next 2 pages again spellbinders for the mats and random flourishes cut from my Silhouette, inked edges and again gold hi-lights as hi points.......On these 2 pages I stamped just the outline of a Holly leaf(unknown stamp) and cut it from green card stock, and again with gel pens in golds, silvers, and bronzes did some doodling and high lighting. and used the Hollies a side spray and pop dotted it. facing page just inking and chalking along with gold bow and ribbon.
On these 2 sets of pages, basically the same things only this timeI used die cuts from Sizzix and pop-dotted them as well. Also diamond glaze on select flourished on the background papers. and white gel pens.....This project was great fun to do and I think they are adorable for stocking stuffers.
Chipboard is such a fun material to work with. My little secret is when using thinner chipboard I liie to use a glue stick to adhere back ground papers, cause when it dries, it gives the chipboard a more thicker and stable feel. It becomes less flimsy to use..
When finished decorating, add toms of ribbons and hang charms from the ribbons, don't forget you can easily attach charms to the photo frames using ribbons and safety pins, or string directly onto ribbon. You may also cover in solid papers and using stamps create your own back ground papers and color them to your liking. There are no rules and the sky's the limit. SO ladies have fun with this. Have a great day, talk to ya all on wednesday, Hugs, Ronnie
