Wooden ornament...

Trying to clean up my RubberRoom for expected guests this month I found this never used 'Moose' and the 'Christmoose' sentiment [by The Stamping Pad Co.] in a box.  Of course, I had to stop cleaning and try them out.  I colored the images with Copics, stamped the package three times and candy cane twice to 3D them, and put Glossy Accents on the ornaments.  I made a grassy knoll for the moose to stand on [and then remembered it is Christmas time and it should have been snowy where he comes from -  blame it on Global Warming!]  The sky and clouds were done with 'Stormy Skies' Distress Ink, a sponge and a homemade cloud template.  My wooden ornament started as a Die-cut balsa heart, colored with Copics, added Liquid Pearls and fastened on the red ribbon as a hanger.  Although it is secured with a small piece of foam tape, it is designed to easily come off for the recipient to use as an ornament or package decor.

I created this for the new 613 Ave C  challenge starting Oct 7:  "ATG/ optional Twist: "Use Something Wooden"  You have the month of October to show your creative talents!   For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas from the DT's incredible inspiration concepts -  click HERE!

  1. Hi Ginny!
    Christmas comes to the Southern Hemisphere too, so YAY for a non-snowy Christmas card!! Your moose is fantastic, and I love that he saved you from obsessive, unnecessary cleaning. Gorgeous stormy sky and wonderful sentiment. I love your ornament heart too! Thanks for sharing your fun card with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges!
