Embellish-It FC72 - Giving the Gift

I created this ornament for the Embellish-It Friday Free For All Challenge 72.

I used Time for Apple Pie that can be found in Barb's store here...

For this ornament, I first cut out a circle out of acetate with a small tab at the top to hold the image in place. I have actually made a template for this process as the size of the circle is important to make the image stay in place. I stamped with Staz-On on acetate, then used Copics to color the image on the reverse side. This is important as the Copics will erase the Staz-On. You can find Copics in Barb's store here...

After the process was complete, I let the Copics dry for a short period of time. I then curled the acetate around a pen and fed it into the ornament. I added some iridescent snow, some ribbon and a rose to the top and voila.

I love this image because it is so versatile. It can be used year around.

Try this out. It makes a thoughtful gift for family and friends.
