I joined an ornament swap this past September and waited till the last possible moment to make them. It was for a blind swap with one partner. There was a dollar limit, but it could either be handmade or store bought. I figured I'd make some. If they were tacky looking, then I'd buy some. These are what I made. The Santa image and the swirls are stamped. I painted the background white, stamped and then colored with watercolors. Added some texture for the fur area, and glued on some snowflake emblishments. The back of the ornament is stamped with a Christmas postage stamp, some snowflakes and more swirls. The snowman is a free hand painted design on a dark blue background. He's one of my fav. designs for winter. The back of the ornament is painted red and a pine bough design added.
I know my ornament swap partner doesn't check out my blogs, but I really hope she'll like them. I sent a matching Santa coaster to her too.
Since she received my item later than anticipated, I added the coaster as an appology and as an added gift for the holidays.
