Inky Impressions DT Call

The time has come around for Nicole to pick the next term's Design Team. I have had a great time being on the team, so much so that I am applying again. For the DT call we had to follow the latest challenge and that was to make an ornament.

Here is my ornament (please click on the picture for a better view)


I saw this clear teardrop in a German shop and thought ahhhh!! So that is what I have used as the base. I first stamped out Ice Skating Rachel and coloured her with promarkers and lots of diamond stickles. I then cut around her leaving a small margin. Here she is close up.


For the background I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper. I cut around the teardrop and then adhered it to the middle of the teardrop. You can't really see the base properly in the pic but I tore some light blue paper and then smeared some diamond stickles over it to make it look snowy. I glued the torn strips all along the base. Was having some trouble at this point!!! I then put a little diamond glaze onto the tips of Rachel's skates to make her stand up onto the "snow". Using the same papers I punched out some snowflakes and glittered them up and added a flat back pearl to each of the middles. I then stuck them to the outside of the teardrop. Next came the green ribbon and little xmas tree charm.
I really would like to continue on the Inky Impressions design team, the girls are a fabulous team and of course the stamps are gorgeous!!!

If you would like to have a go at being on the team all the details are on the Inky Impressions Challenge blog right here.

Good luck!!!
