Smeared & Smudged - 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Smeared & Smudged Forum's Twelve Days of Christmas, hosted by the great ladies at Smeared Ink ! For today, I made an ornament to hang on a garland. This year is a very Skelly Christmas in many ways. LOL

The base is an embossed piece of purple foil which is backed by black cardstock. The main image is from Misty Benson's A Skelly Christmas rubber stamp set, sold by Smeared Ink. I stamped it on 7 Gypsies music paper cut into the shape of a tree and colored with pencils & markers. At the top is some of my spun fibers I made with Angelina & wool, and added a few beads. As soon as I find the fishing line, I'll add the hanger part hahaha.

Thanks for looking & check out all the other awesome Jolly Bloggers - the list is to your right -->

Smeared & Smudged - 12 Days of Christmas - Day 1

For the first day of Smeared & Smudged Forum's 12 Days of Christmas I made a tag:

The tag background was made using these instructions by Tammy Tutterow, which is a debossed tag that looks icy since the debossing is filled with a crackle finish. I used Deco-Art's crackle finish rather than Tim Holtz's Crackle Paint in Rocky Road, since that is what I had. The stamp is from Smeared Ink stamp set "A Skelly Christmas" that I colored with pencils & silver ink. The snowflake buttons are really old, like me, but I colored them with silver stamp ink, added some ribbon and voila!

Thanks for checking it out!
