Be Merry

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I thought I would share a quick little ornament I made using the Polaroid Cutie stamp from Artistic Outpost.
I don't own any of AO's gorgeous Christmas stamps (note to self...buy them!), but I thought that I could Christmas this little sweetie up!!

I stamped the image on a child's wooden domino. I picked up a TON of these last year in the Target dollar spot. I love them for ornaments!! So lightweight and easy to work with. I colored her with Copics. It was a little trickier to color on this type of surface, but I think it worked out okay. I added the whites of her eyes and polka dots to her dress with white gel pen. I used gold peel off borders along the top and bottom. I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts) with Versamark and embossed in white. I attached the lights ribbon trim to the back of the domino and glued rattail cording around the edge, stringing both ends through a gold bed and tying it off with a knot for hanging. I then covered the back with a piece of sturdy cardstock to finish it off. Finally, I added a snowflake to the bottom corner. I thought it came out cute and Christmassy looking!!

Also, I wanted to be sure to let you know all know that there is a sale at Artistic Outpost!!
