Aurora Christmas Hanging Ornament - The East Wind DT

Howzit Stamping Friends and Happy Christmas in July!
Today I'm sharing my design team inspiration project showcasing The East Wind's July Newsletter freebie, Aurora Holly Sparkleberry She's a Christmas themed digi and will be available in the Etsy store soon!

I love making 3D Christmas hanging ornaments that can be used to decorate the Christmas tree or hang on the wall.

 I love the elegant vintage glow of the ornament hanging on my wall.

 This is what the ornament looks like in daylight. 

 She's coloured with Copics with white Dylusions paint pen highlights and the background shading is done with Walnut Stain Distress Crayon blended with water.  I also did the same Distress Crayon treatment on the standard circle mat that was die cut from pink cardstock to grunge it up.  Metallic gold accents were added to all the mats with a combination of gold Promarker, DecoColor liquid gold paint pen and Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink.

I used the following Spellbinders dies:
Standard Circles large
Classic Scalloped Circles small
Petite Scalloped Circles large
Lacey Circles

A closer look at the details. 

The back of the ornament is decorated too.
The ornament Happy Holidays ornament stamp is by Recollections:  stamped in Lady Bug Memento Ink, clear Wink of Stella applied for some lovely shimmer, a touch of metallic gold Promarker on the hanger and then a coat of Judkikins Diamond Glaze was applied to the entire ornament as well as the holly berries on main design.  I also used clear Wink of Stella on the holly and her lips.
I embellished some of the mats with gold Promarker dots and Diamond Stickles glitter glue for lots of magical sparkle.
