Sweet Stamps- Ornament Challenge

  This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are making Ornaments- we want to see ornaments or an ornament on your project.

 I found this idea for the rolled paper star on Pintrest- but did not  'pin' it, so I cannot give you the link (if I find it, I will.......).
I had a paper mache star ornament, I painted it white then added Bo Bunny DSP with Gel Medium.

 On the other side (which will be the front) I stamped  the Stained Glass Madonna and Child image and embossed it with Queen's Gold embossing Powder.  Next, I painted the image with Creative Inspiration Paints:

 I love the shimmer....wish it showed up better.......

I made a color chart for the CI paints- so I put the ornament next to my color chart to choose the color for the border and added paper rolls:
 I decided Beige CI paint would work the best for the look I wanted.

 I cut up pages from a magazine and used a skewer to roll them......

I added the rolled paper around the edges and used gel medium to attach them.

 Once done, I added a bow with gold ribbon and added a star- it is metal and was an antique bronze color to begin with. I painted on Creative Inspiration paint in a bright Yellow- lovin the way it looks.....

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Image- Stained Glass Madonna and Child HERE
Ranger Distress Ink- clear embossing Ink HERE
Ranger Queens Gold Embossing Powder HERE
Bo Bunny Father Christmas 6x6 HERE on the back of the ornament
Creative Inspirations Paint HERE

This is absolutely beautiful and outstanding.
I love the technique you applied to bring this ornaments to life. Loved how you used the stain glass image and how you rolled those papers so small and tight.
Incredibly gorgeous in every way.
