12 Days of Christmas - Day 6
A week or so I was looking on the DT blogs and I came upon a paper ornament that I absolutely loved. DT member Terese Broman made this darling little paper heart ornament. It was woven. I liked it so much, I thought I would try my own version. And here is what I came up with.
First, I started with printing out the pattern (supplied). I cut 2 pattern pieces from this and then wove the bottom sections together. When woven, the two halves create a heart.
I then stamped the upper left side of the heart 3 times with my Poinsettia stamp and embossed with gold. I chalked in the images. I backed on black card stock and trimmed.
I then pulled out one of my ATC transparency sheets and colored the back of the transparency with copic markers. Once colored I applied Art Institute Glitter Glue and silver glitter. I let this dry before mounting onto my background paper. I finished with prima flowers and buttons.
