It's Ornamental!

Hello! Happy Thursday! Even though it's not quite autumn yet, this week's My Favorite Challenge is to think Christmas! The challenge is to create an ornament or holiday decoration. I used a paperboard star from Michaels to create this Joy ornament. I covered it with BasicGrey Wassail paper and used Bling Bet and MFT Adornments for the letters. I embellished the top with ribbon, Martha Stewart branch punch, and more crystals.

I used ink to antique the edges -- I really like the vintage look it gives. I used Papertrey's Ink's Chamomile Vintage Touch tea dye ink .

This is the star before antiquing. Okay, but plain.

Here is the star after sponging on the tea dye ink. Much better! :)

I hope you can play along with our Ornamental challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Have a great day!
