Hanging Ornament

Here's a little something I've been working on in the evenings. My favourite Christmas colours are Gold Purple and Cream, Not very traditional I know but I just love that combination. I followed THIS tutorial on YouTube for the basic technique and changed it up a bit for what I wanted. All the bauble stamps were from the Ornaments Keepsakes stamp set and were cut out using the co-ordinating framelits. The Ink is Elegant Eggplant, I wanted a deep rich purple and this fit the bill perfectly. It did look VERY dark when I first stamped it - black almost but became much lighter as it dried (phew!) For the centres I cut out two large snowflakes and four medium snowflakes from the Snow Flurry Bigz Die, from Champagne Glimmer Paper. Those were topped with buttons from the New Vintage Buttons selection and then finished off with a few Basics Peals in various sizes. I linked the decorations using Bakers Twine and of course as almost everything needs ribbon and or a bow, I cracked open a Crumb Cake double whammy using both the Seam Binding Ribbon and Scalloped Tulle Ribbon. And Voile! A beautiful hand made decoration to hang on your wall. I made a few more of the middle decoration to hang on their own on the tree:) What's your favourite Christmas Colour Combination?
