Beaded Christmas Micro Ornament


My first Christmas tree ornament for this year. Stampin' Up! To You & Yours stamp set. The house image is stamped on Shimmery cardstock in Going Gray. I then used a blender pen to add some color to to image. I just had to add glitter so I used Crystal Effects along the edge of the roof and added Dazzling Diamonds. Once it was totally dry I sandwiched it between two 2 x 3 Micro slides and used Sticky strip along the edges to hold it together. Ultra-fine microbeads topped off the sticky strip but I had to add a dash of color and decided on these Royal Blue beads from Pennywisearts.com - please check out their site for wonderful colors of beads.
For the hanger I used silver wire that I strung various shades of blue beads. I hope you like it.

Cheryl, this is gorgeous! You're inspiring me to make some ornaments this year! Where do you get your glass slides??? I know you live right around the corner from me, so if it's somewhere local, I gotta go get some!

IF you would email me your source it is nball81@nc.rr.com

Thanks
