My Last Christmas Decoration of 2011


I hope you have all had a very good Christmas.

Today I want to show you a Wall Hanging I made to decorate our house this Christmas.   I started with a plain white wooden heart and ended with this lovely decoration that we will treasure for years to come.

The stamp I've used is called Tilda as Lucia, from Magnolia.

I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Copic Perfect Colouring Paper and coloured it using the following markers:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, R20
Hair: E50, E31, E55, E57
Dress: B0000, B000, B00, B02, B05
Star: Y38, Y32.
Stick: E13, E18

Here's a close-up of the coloured image

Other Items Used

Papers: From my stash
Sentiment Stamp: Magnolia
Musical Score Stamp: From Whimsy Stamps
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink in Gathered Twigs
Embellishments: Ribbons and Star Pin from my stash.  Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Stickles Glitter Glue

Here's a close up of the flower embellishments:

I'm entering this ornament into the following challenges:

Paper Cutz Challenge - All Hearts Come Home For Christmas
Allsorts Challenge - Blue and Brown
Anything Goes Challenge - Blue plus one other colour (I chose shades of brown)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Stampavie & More - Hearts

Thanks for stopping by today.

Awwww Penni, This is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love your coloring and shading on this Tilda. She's beautiful. Seems so strange to be saying the "Last Christmas Card of the year" doesn't it? The Holiday just flew right by...
Wishing you a Wonderful New Year!
