I Do Believe - Window Trinket Ornament Designed for Alpha Stamps

This ornament is another piece that I designed for Alpha Stamps
The base is made from a masonite Window Necklace Trinket.  The masonite is 1/8" think and is easy to assemble with just a bit of glue.  The middle piece has two notches to hook the connectors from ball chain into (to turn the trinket into a pendant).  There is a little space between the front of the window and the back to accommodate dimensional objects.  The overall dimensions of the windows are 2” x 1 ¼”.
The image in the window was black and white so I used watercolor pencils to add color.
To give the window a touch of winter, I added snow and icicles.  Click here to see the tutorial on how it is done.
Below is the list of Alpha Stamps products I used in this piece.
·         Window Necklace Trinket
·         CS Santa at the Window
·         CS Santa’s Workshop
·         Swirl Ornament Hook
·         Gold Zig Zag Dresden Borders
·         Stamped Flourishes
·         Sliver Chain

Wow! What a great way to end 2011, with an email from the Wonderful Artist Laura Carson, letting me know I WON the All Snug in their Beds Ornament! That is my favorite ornament too! Thank you so much Laura! You are such an inspiration to me and my art!
