Christmas Ornament Tutorial

Hello everybody, today's post is a tutorial for a Christmas ornament using  Retro Cafe Art  products.  Hope you enjoy it.

I started by painting  both the top and one side of the bottom of the RCA Classic Gothic Arch ATC frame cream.
 
The next step was to glue the RCA Madonna and Angel image from the Christmas Collage sheet by Debrina Pratt to the inside of the  open part. I did have to piece it abit. I also painted the top portion of the bottom piece of the ATC frame with gold  paint so you can see it thru the top opening.
 
Using a white glue, I glued the top and bottom of the ATC  together. Using gold paint I brushed it over the image as well as, the frame leaving some of the cream exposed.
 
I added gold Stickles for shine, then came the angel button. I punched a hole with a Crop-a-dile thru the ATC and attached the gold tassel.

Next I added gold sequins and gold dew drops to the corners for dimension. The final touch was to add a cut gold sequin for the Madonna's pretty crown.

 Hope you create something angelic this week.
take care, gerri
