Photo tutorial on christmas ornament..

How to make this little ornament...

I'd like to enter this in the challenge on
1. Design Memory Craft - take the challenge with Mou
2. Simon Says stamp - christmas
3. TIOT - christmas is coming
4. Stampotique designers challenge - SDC176 - anything goes


Start with a slab of wood...

....cover it with some layers of gesso, (I did it with my finger) 

 ...stamp the music and script onto some blotting paper...

...tear the blotting paper into smaller pieces...  

... adhere them on top of the drie gesso with multi medium matte... 
.. leave to dry, or dry with heat tool ... 

.... tear away the excess ...

...stamp the branch onto a seperate piece of cardstock, and fussy cut it ...

...color it with (Faber and Castell) watercolor pencils.. 
...adhere it to the base with 3D glue... 
...add some Glossy Accents to where the berries are, and pour some tiny little glass beads over it; tap off excess...
.color the edges of the plaque with (Faber and Castell) watercolor pencils.. 

...cover the leaves allover with Glossy Accents and leave to dry. .. 

... attach some thread colored with watercolor pencils...
 (the Glossy Accents is not dry yet, that's why it looks milky)
and I have finished a second one ...


This was the first one I did: 

I am going to use it as a christmas "card" for somebody, the wishes are being written on the back. Isn't that nice...a gift instead of a card!?
