Shiny Silver Ornaments

So, Thanksgiving is over and now it's on to Christmas.... at least for my crafting life that is . I'm starting my Christmas cards and ornaments early this year. We will be moving in a week or so so I have to start because everything will be topsy turvy for a while. I will have a nice space for a studio...no furniture but at least a nice sunny space all to myself. I'm not sharing it as a guest room either! LOL.

Well, these two ornaments today are based on Gecko Galz  images from the November Angels sheet. If you get a chance stop by their Yahoo group or subscribe to their newsletter, there's prizes, contests, friendship and inspiration too.

The first ornament tag uses the Vintage Angel image. I water-colored it and added silver Stickles accents. It is sandwiched in between a chipboard Gothic Arch by Retro Cafe Art painted silver. The entire piece is edged with sparkly silver tinsel. Accents include clear rhinestones and a shiny ribbon hanger. The hand cut sentiment says "Merry Christmas".

The second piece is a tag using a pretty image from the Vintage Angel sheet. It is under a silver glitter tag cut out. On the bottom is a purple snowflake that I took apart and edged the piece with. The image is accented with Stickles, paint and pearls. Pearls and a shiny silver ribbon are the finishing touches. The hand cut text reads: "Rejoice with heart and soul and voice!"

Hope you will be rejoicing this week.
take care, Gerri


"Merry Christmas"
