It's Monday and that's ABC (anything but a card) day at Catch The Bug! The challenge is to use a non-Christmas image on your project. I made this ornament using Bugaboo Stamps Itchy Dog.
I started with two images of itchy dog. One of them facing left and then, reversing the image using my photo editing, the other facing right. I colored them exactly the same and then fussy cut them. I then cut a 2 1/2 inch circle from acetate. Using glossy accents as my adhesive (very strong) I attached the images back to back on the acetate and let them dry. Once it had dried completely I punched a tiny hole in the top to string fishing line through. I then carefully rolled the acetate up and inserted it into the ornament, leaving the fishing line sticking out of the top. (I used a large ornament for this because the hole needed to be large enough for the rolled acetate) The image will bend slightly but it's easy to straighten using a something thin enough to insert into the ornament (I used a small knitting needle). Using a funnel, I added glitter to the ball making sure I got some in front and behind the acetate. I then threaded the fishing line through the holes on the top clasp and tied them off. I used a rub on for the sentiment and to give it the icy look, I drizzled glossy accents along the top and then glittered it. A nice bow and cording were all that was needed to finish it off.
Other challenges I've entered this project:
Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN
