A Christmas Ornament


Today I want to show you a Christmas Ornament I've made using Sweet Christmas Tilda by Magnolia.

I started with a plain white wooden heart, which I found at the weekend when we were browsing at our local garden centre.  The heart only cost £1.99 and was already painted white and slightly distressed - what a bargain !!!!

So, with some added paper, lace, ribbon, flowers and patience I transformed the heart into this ...

I'm so pleased with how this has turned out - I'm glad I bought more than one heart LOL!!! 

As usual, I coloured the image using Copic Markers.  Here's a close-up:
