DT Project #1 by Minxy, Featuring:

Christmas Cottage Collection by Teresa Collins

Hay Snazzy Gang
Nicky here with another fun filled week of Christmas cheer!
If this is the first time visiting in a while do scroll back as both Gillian and Lesley have made some fab projects.

So to kick start my week I made these fun little Christmas tree ornaments.

They started out as plain black plastic curtain rings, I used gold alcohol ink mixative on the rings leaving some black showing to give them an aged look.
I then punched out circles of the different Christmas cottage papers, and distressed round the edges with vintage photo distress ink.

I ran a thin layer of cosmic shimmer glue round the edge of the paper and stuck it to the ring.
 I knew I wanted some little angels for the centre's so had a look online and found a great 1" circle angels digi sheet on Etsy. {The seller: Crafty Button Design}

 I cut out all my angels and stuck them in, I then filled the edges with rock candy distress stickles topped with extra 'dry glitter' rock candy stickles for added shimmer and twinkle. 
I also gave the angels a coat of glossy accents.

When they were all dry I turned them over and stuck snowflake rosettes made from more of the Christmas cottage papers to the back. Because the papers are double sided it didn't matter about any overhang from the rosettes. 
When hung from the tree they look pretty on both sides.
I hope you have enjoyed today's offering, I'll be back again on Wednesday with my second project.

Till Then...Stay Inky
