I designed my own shape for the easel background and then started playing.....I am in love with this sweet half moon Santa from Sassy Cheryl and I thought he would look great. However, he just looked SO plain sitting on the ornament - next thing you know I drew upon my inner Kiitie Caracciola (oooh I love her work - you can check out her gallery here) and out came the Martha Stewart punch, some snowflake dies, blinginty bling and soon Santa was nestled amongst the greenery with snowflakes falling. I do have to admit that at one point I had to tell myself 'step away from the bling' as I was afraid I might be getting to carried away. Below I have posted the inspiration image and a second card I made using this same easel background I created and the Spellbinders Ornament die.....it amazes me how changing things like paper, and images can make three very similar cards look so different.
This is the inspiration piece, now watermark can't remember who did it, but they are talented.
This is my second card using the shapes from my first one at the top of the page.
Just love how both of my cards turned out - beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. I have about 13 ornaments painted and finished and ready to go. Thanks for looking.
