Marcia's Ornament Swap

I took photos of the 2 ornaments that I decorated for Marcia's Christmas swap that I posted about the other day...ages ago when I first sent them off. I thought that I should do the right thing and wait until the swap was over and everyone should have received their ornaments before I posted the photos.....but then I left it too long, and totally forgot! So here they are hahaha:

I covered the star in glue, then pressed it onto some patterned paper and allowed it to dry. I then cut around it using a craft knife and did the same on the other side. I then dusted over it in white acrylic paint, and used a skewer to dot silver spots across the pattern. I punched a hole in the top and threaded it with some green furry yarn/wool.

I pressed the snowflake onto a silver inkpad, until it was completely covered in the ink. I then sprinkled SU! Heat and Stick powder over it, and heated it, followed by a sprinkling of SU! Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and heated it again. I punched a hole in the top and threaded it with some SU! light blue grosgrain ribbon.

I would also like to extend my congratulations to Dani :) xx

Thanks so much for the public congrats Tegan!

I've actually been in hospital but nothing to do with the pregnancy. Baby is fine and has been bouncing around like a mexican jumping bean!

Love the sparkles!

Very pretty! I love all the sparkles on the snowflake. I haven't gotten any of the Dazzling Diamonds glitter yet, but I will have too real soon. The glitter I have leaves a green hue behind instead to the white sparkly like yours.
Thanks for sharing!
