Project Details

Stamps : Mark's Finest Papers "Seasonal Poinsettia's"

I started with a paper mache ornament you can pick up at a local craft store, and altered it.  I painted the sides and back a gold color.  Glued the front of the ornament to a larger peice of patterned paper.  After the glue was dry, I trimmed around the edges with an Exacto knife.  I used my Basic Grey File Set to smooth out the edges.  The edges were then distressed with ink.  I embellished the top and bottom point with gold paper.  Stamp the poinsettia image x 4 on white cardstock, color with Copics, and trim.  I trimed out some of the center petals from 2 of the images so that I could layer and pop them up.  Adhere to front of ornament.  Stamp sentiment.
