For the tree

The theme of this week's new challenge at Charisma Cardz was chosen by me - and it's Anything but a card, so as I am taking Christy Tomlinson's online workshop called the 12 Artsy Ornaments of Christmas at the moment, I have used my first project from the workshop for today's challenge. This ornament is based on a design by Alisa Burke, the heart shapes were cut by hand out of a couple of book pages and the flowers are water coloured straight onto the pages then, once dried, doodled on with a black permanent marker. For my ones I also added some detail with a metallic Sakura pen and stuck on some sequins, before sewing the two halves together with a little toy stuffing between them. I also finished my decorations off with a coating of Mod Podge to make them a little more durable.
