SCS Sketch...Ornament


I love Wednesday's, because I love participating in Rox's sketch challenge on SCS. You can see the sketch HERE. I stamped this Tree Ball image (Artful Stamper) three times onto the backside of Vanilla Cream Prismatics with Tuxedo Black (Memento), and colored them with copics. I Ink distressed the top image with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink) and framed it with Crabapple Dark. I then cut on the inside of the circle with an exacto knife.

After that, I cut out the trees, snowline and holly from one of the other colored images and popped them up on the main bg image for dimension. Finally, I added an acetate window to the back of the cut out piece, and the popped holly and trim. The snow piece is colored with my inkssentials opaque white pen, and all the snowflakes and holly are glittered up. I added some crystal laquer to the little baubles on the top and bottom of the ornament, and a few dew drops along the sides of the main panel.

Oh, I almost forgot, the beautiful Merry Christmas Script was stamped with Black Onyx Versafine and embossed with Detail Black ep (Judikins)...awesome stuff I tell you!! And the ribbon is Olive Twill (May Arts)

Ali update...Ali made it through some really tough tests with flying colors. They were excited to see that there is no new bleeding, but there is still swelling on her brain so they can't do a biopsy yet. Keep her and her family in your prayers as the decide the next plan of action with their awesome team of doctors. I keep this thread on SCS - HERE - updated daily.

Thank you so very much for stopping in!! I hope your week is off to a great start.
Tosh
