Wooden Tree Ornament

A couple of weeks ago I got a wooden ornament from Archiver’s, and today I finally had a go at decorating it.

I began by stamping my Eclectic Omnibus wooden stamp in Archival Ink–Sepia on all sides.


Then I inked the ornament with Distress Ink–Fired Brick, using the tool and foam pad.

After that, I used my Tim Holtz Fabulous Flourish stamp with Brilliance–Gamma Green ink and covered the ornament with flourishes.  This required multiple stampings; just one didn’t cover the whole thing.

At this point I assembled the ornament.  Then I used Stickles Xmas Red to add dots of sparkle within the ornament, and Stickles Cinnamon along the edges.  I thought about using Distress Stickles but decided I wanted more sparkle.

The only other thing I might do is to go over some of the flourish with a sparkly green gel pen . . . I’ll have to see what it looks like once the Stickles are dry.

It was fun!
