12 Days of Christmas- Day 6

Alex has been holding out on me and I found this tucked in her things.  I knew she made it last weekend, but then I couldn't find it to share.  That girl really needs some help.  She is a bit lot organizationally challenged.
Anyway, this is an ornament she made using a stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps.  She stole, well I guess not stole because she asked permission first, the idea from Alison when she did one before that is here during the 31 Days of Halloween event.
 She stamped the Angel from the Holiday Collage Plate #56 with Staz-On ink on a transparency.  For something that sounds easy enough, she certainly struggled with it, but that is probably just her ;).
 The image was then cut out in a circle the same measurement across as the ornament with a tab left at the top to stick up in the hanger part so it would stay upright and not shift around.    After that Alex added an assortment of beads to the inside of the ornament both front and back of the image.
Using a thin red stain ribbon she tied a hanger on the top of the ornament.  It was a bit difficult for me to photograph because this ornament reflects even the tiniest amount of light, but I hope you can get the idea of how lovely this really is.  I am super glad Alison made her fabulous one in October and so is Alex because this will look fabulous on the tree.


Happy Holidays!
Edgar

ahoy....i needed an idea for an ornament exchange. how perfect is this? your directions were great to follow

Alison said...

I am so glad that I inspired you!!! This came out amazing! And, I never even thought to leave a piece on top so that the transparency wouldn't spin! Now I need to ask to use YOUR idea! ;} Love the beads too. FYI, I like to hang these ornaments off the tree...in a window, from the ceiling, etc...this way the light catches it and looks beautiful. GREAT job!!!
