Shimmery Pinecone Ornament

This card isn't "for" anything. I received this image from Flourishes All That Glitters set in a swap a while back and decided to use it with this lovely paper from Daisy D's called Holiday Pinecone. I painted the pinecone with Twinkling H2Os in Golden Jade on watercolor paper, put some Liquid Applique on the snow top, and used a Pentel Sunburst Metallic gel pen in gold for the ornament cap. The pinecone really shimmers in real life. It was sponged with Creamy Caramel, cut out with a Nestabilites Petite Oval die, and matted on first Garden Green and then Close To Cocoa, and attached with 3M foam squares.

My card base is Close To Cocoa with a layer of Garden Green, then the DP with paper piercing and antique copper brad accents. The next element is more Close To Cocoa and Garden Green with more paper piercing and brads. I tied a green and tan gingham bow around this element and tied the sentiment tag on with jute. The sentiment is stamped on a tag cut with a Nestabilities die, stamped in Garden Green with a stamp from Verve's Wonderful Wishes set and sponged with Creamy Caramel and attached with more 3M foam squares. It was a fun card to make and will go in my "keeper" stash.

Thanks for looking!
