I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend! I know I did! I hosted Thanksgiving, got all of my Christmas decorations up, shopped, visited with family and friends, and even managed brunch with Santa yesterday. It was a beautiful busy weekend!
It's that time of the month again when Crafty Secret's hosts their design team challenge and linky party!
Today I have a vintage inspired ornament and step by step directions on how I created it.
I adore this little Eskimo....it is part of Crafty Secret's digital Vintage Christmas set. I gave her a bit of color with my Copics and added flock to her hood, collar, and cuffs.
I love adding pops of silver here and there with tinsel ribbon, silver glitter, and silver sequins. I also added satin ribbon and pink pom pom trim.
On the left is how I purchased it from the store. (Hobby Lobby) I selected a pretty egg shell blue paint by Martha Stewart. Once dry I brushed on glossy accents and sprinkled it with glitter.
I use up so much glitter with this addiction I have that my bottle is now empty! :(
I wanted to add the silver trim, so I grabbed my tacky glue and a bunch of clothespins.....
It is helpful to hold the trim down until it is dry. ;)
Here is a close up of my Eskimo girl. Colored, flocked.....
I used two different Spellbinder's circle dies to fit my ornament. I airbrushed the image while the die was still in place with a pink Copic marker.
I didn't want the image to be too far back inside the ornament, so I stacked 3 dimensional foam circles and glued them inside the ornament.
I also wanted a silver snowflake with a little rosebud for the center.
Here is my ribbon before adding my silvery snowflake. I use string all the time to tie my bows together.
And here is one last look at the ornament all put together. :)
