8th day of S&S Christmas

Another attempt at scheduling ... wish me luck.

Today's post is all about the tree. I've made 3 ornaments. 2 are stamped, the other is just twisted paper. They are all glittered in one way or another.
The two stamped ones are made using the same stamp but both look so very different from each other.

Stamped out 6 times onto white CS with jade green ink and coloured with promarkers. Each layer was cut out then embossed with red glitter powder. Three layers at the back are the same as the front, just a piece of thin red ribbon sandwiched between to hang. Some red gems added. This is the only pic without glare as it's so shiny.

Number two - stamped onto acetate

Patina stickles to fill the holly leaves after colouring in with promarkers and icicle stickles in the middle. Some dewdrops adhered with pinflair glue gel. After it was cut out and sandwiched between the die cut borders of course.

The third one is made up from 6 squares of paper.

No stamping on this but still a very effective ornament nonetheless. A touch of more of the patina stickles for a little bit of sparkle. I've been trying to find the link to credit the source of this idea. I'll update my post if it comes to mind.
That's about it for today. Blog list is over on my side bar for you to carry on hopping
