OK, so now I am addicted...

To making ornaments!  This is my second one, and I can't wait to make another one!  I asked the girls for color suggestions, and Leandra said purple, so that will be next.  Any other suggestions?  :)  So here is #2:
I specifically made this with a challenge in mind, which I will link to at the end of my post.  It called for a monochromatic color scheme, so I'm *hoping* they don't mind the touches of gold too much!  :)  Here's a closer view:
I used vellum for my poinsettia again, this time coloring it with Broken China DI.  The swirls are cut from photo paper again, and inked with Broken China, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers.  Chad suggested that I add glitter to the flower this time, so I used an orange stick to "paint" the Star Dust Stickles on, and boy is it pretty IRL!!!  I'm really loving making these!  I think I am going to have to switch up my embellishments soon tho...I don't want them all to be poinsettias!
Here are the challenges I am linking to, so far:
Winter Wonderland:  Monochrome
Country View Challenges:  Monochromatic
Craftyhazelnut:  Patterened Paper for January
CHNC Extra Challenge for January: Anything Christmas
ABC Christmas challenge:  A for Anything Christmas
Those are all the ones I know of for now!  Thanks for having a look today!
