Stretch N Bubbles Challenge #30

Good Evening!!

I had a burst of creative energy today so I wanted to share with you my creation this week for SNB's newest challenge using this fabulous holiday ornament image!

It's called Flower Ornament:

Here is my creation!!

My card measures 4x4".  I used a piece of Echo Park Paper from the Christmas Bells line that was given to me by my darling friend Betty!  (thanks girl!)

I stitched the edges and coated them in SU! Real Red ink.  I then set to work on my image.  I colored it with my Copic markers.  The largest part of the ornament as well as the ribbon holding it is colored in Lipstick Red.  I then took my Versamark pen and clear embossing powder to make the red part of the ornament really shine!

I then colored the ornament interior in Turquoise, Chartreuse and Gold.  I printed the image again, colored the Turquoise and Gold sections again and trimmed them out.  I then used my SU! 2-way glue pen to get them nice and gluey and then coated them with the same corresponding glitter colors.

I adhered them to the base ornament with 3-D foam adhesive giving it a super textured and POP look. 
I made the ruffly ribbon on the left and glued it down with Aileen's all purpose glue as well as the chipboard emellis that you see to the left and right of the main SNB Ornament image. 

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!  I truly LOVED playing along again this week!!
