A chipboard ornament.

Next week is my Mum's birthday and I wanted to make her something special instead of just a card so I made this little ornament which will hang up to remind her that even though we're miles apart I'm thinking of her. 

The backing is a piece of square 4 x 4 chipboard by Tando Creative which I gessoed to create a neutral background to work on. Next I cut a smaller square of Glitz paper and inked the edges, a doily and a die cut frame and butterfly from more Glitz paper and layered it all together.  For detail, I used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze and painted it on the butterfly to give a gorgeous shimmer along with some stick on Prima Crystals.  The packaging from the Crystals came in handy too as a backing for the frame and the mini tag which is tucked under the ribbon. Finally I added a little birdie paper clip by Prima on the bow.

I hope she likes it and I hope you do too.

Have a good week
