Today, I'm sharing an ornament I made for a Prima Doll Christmas Ornament Swap. I love participating in swaps and I love Prima Doll Stamps so it's a win win. The challenge was to make an ornament from die cuts and wings. I used papers from the Crate Paper Bundled Up Collection. To make the ornament I die cut a Tim Holtz Ornament using grunge paper and then cut an oval out of the top of the ornament. 

I covered the back of the ornament opening with a newsprint paper and painted the ornament with Tim Holtz Crackle Glaze in Pine Needles. Then I covered it with Sparkle Mod Podge. I added a red glitter brad from Stampin' Up to the bottom and used some small stickers to make the "holly" in her hair. I painted the top of the ornament with Pewter Distress Paint. I love how it turned out. The fun die cut technique could be used for lots of things. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop back by tomorrow for Day 7!
