FS199 Christmas Ornament

It's Sunday, so it's time for another Featured Stamper challenge!  This week the honour goes to Kris (aka Krischer) who inspired me with her Olive and Artichoke card.  Kris likes using the Top Note die, although I don't own that particular die, I thought the Label 17 Nestabilities would work nicely!!  :)  I changed the theme and colours of the original and omitted the sentiment, adding a couple of ribbons and a bow.  :)

I started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with gloss gold and some Wassail DP.  Next I cut some gold using the Label 17 Nestabilites and then some more Wassail using the same die and cutting along the emboss line.  Around both these panels I attached some ivory satin ribbon and topped with some red satin ribbon.  The ornament is from Our Daily Bread's December release (available Dec 1st!) called Christmas Ornaments and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card.  Firstly I airbrushed the whole thing using the Copic Airbrush System and a Y23 Copic Marker.  I made it a little heavier on the edges, leaving it lighter in the middle.  I then coloured the image with Copics (YG91, YG93, YG95, R35, R37, R39, R89, Y23, YR23) and added some accenting with a Gold Spica Pen.  It was cut out with a pair of scissors and popped up on a gold panel cut with the Heirloom Ornaments die by Spellbinders.  To finish I added some gold cord to the top of the ornament and a red satin bow to the bottom made with a Bow Easy.
