Good morning! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog today with a vintage ornament. Over the years my style has evolved, but vintage still makes my heart flutter.
Over the summer I take lids from candles and soak them in vinegar water. You can do this with silver jingle bells too! I leave them all summer until they are beautifully rusted! I die cut a circle to fit inside, sponged ink on the edges, and stamped the image in black. I colored it using Copic Markers. I added a bit of glimmer using a Wink of Stella pen.
I didn't want the image to sit too far inside the lid, so I used Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam tape. I stacked 3 layers under the image and adhered it in place. I used the Dual Tip Glue pen to add the glittery snow underneath her.
I die cut the poinsettia using a Spellbinder's die. I colored it with Copic Markers and then gave each layer a coating of glue using the Dual Tip Glue pen. I sprinkled it with glitter. I assembled the flower and wanted it to sit up on the lid, so I once again, used the Crafty Foam Tape underneath it. I added some gems (Queen & Company) and dots of silver Stickles around the perimeter.
Have a wonderful Sunday! Thank you for popping by!
