{We Wish You A Merry Christmas}

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!  Now it's time to move full-steam ahead on my holiday projects.  I've got a couple of matching ornament chipboard plaques to share with you today:

I am in love with Sylvia Zet's illustrations for Whimsy Stamps and I couldn't wait to ink up this adorable image, fittingly called "HOLLY".  

I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and painted it with Distress Ink markers, water, and a paintbrush.  I then die-cut the image and distressed the edges with ink and white gesso paint.  I added some dot highlights throughout the image with gesso and a dot stylus tool.

The bases of the ornaments are from a chipboard album found in the dollar section of a craft store last year.  I painted the bases pink and stamped the MFT Music Note background stamp over the top, in red ink.  I carried the red and pink color throughout the rest of the piece.

Each ornament is decorated with lace and trims/ribbons and a bunch of flowers from {I Am Roses}:
R77-310, R40-78, R2-426, G1-827, S10-40, S10-427

I finished them off with a couple of die-cut snowflakes from MFT, a wooden flower hat pin, red and aqua berry bunches, and gesso all over for a snow effect.  Parts of the image are also covered with a Wink of Stella glitter pen.

I'm linking up these cuties to the following challenges:
