Festive Friday - I can't stop/SSS Monday challenge - Christmas Countdown

I hope I'm not making too many for the Festive Friday challenge, I've noticed lot's of other christmas card challenges, but this one is my fave.

So this time I made an ornament instead of a card and I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge -  Christmas Countdown, because I've managed to tick another gift off the list and also for the SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

I was very taken with this gorgeous ornament made by Cathy Andronicou in the Christmas classes on the Penny Black Blog, so I thought I'd give it a try.
The only challenge  was making my own tassel.  The stamp is Penny Black's Natures Best and the 'Merry' is made wit a PB die. I used water colour pencils,  gelatos wink of stellar pen, a Faber Castell  Pitt Artist white pen (for highlights) .
I also stamped some sheet music over the image with gold ink.


  1. Love your ornament--beautifully colored!

  5. Catching up on visiting blogs, I really like this one! (and your new header). I am trying to make ornaments as a Christmas gift for teachers and such, This one looks pretty and detailed, hopefully a good one to mass produce?? I am gonna try to use my snowflake die from PTI to make something that hopefully will be this pretty too :)
