Christmas Ornaments


Here a few ornaments made with Layers of color stamps. (www.layersofcolor.com) These were such fun! I got the idea from Patty S's blog, the Magpie's Nest. I stamped onto ivory cardstock with Black Staz-On ink, and then colored with colored pencils. I ran a 20 guage wire through holes made with a Japanese screw punch, and added some beads. I smashed the coiled wire with a hammer on a metal block. I have added glitter to the ornaments, but, not sure if the pics show it up too well. It's time to get into the Christmas spirit!
