Old Fashion Christmas Ornament

Red, Green with gold or silver is the colour theme of this week's Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and there is a great prize for one lucky winner of this challenge from Fred, She Said Designs.

I decided to use this cute Santa image from Fred called Little Fat Santa and make an old fashion Christmas Ornament.  I used an empty ribbon spool that I spray painted red then added gold and green glitter paper, red pompoms, and a two gold bells.  I after I had finished the background I added by fat Santa which I coloured with Copic Markers and added Polar White Flower Soft to Santa's jacket and Hat.  Did you ever make one of these ornament when you were young?

Come join us at Holly Jolly this week. Pop over to their challenge blog and see the cards that the rest of the design team have created to inspire you.
