Elegant Ornament from Stone House Stamps

How's this for an elegant card? It has lots of bling. I added Star Dust Stickles to the pine cones, gold Spica to the top of the ornament, and glossy accents to the ornament.

I stamped the images from Stone House stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Curious Cryogen white. I cut masks for the ornament and the 2 pine cones. Using Copic markers B24 Sky, B63 Light Hydrangea and B66 Clematis, I airbrushed the sky. I added a little bit of R83 Rose Mist for a soft touch.

To color the ornament I used R29 Lipstick Red and YR23 Yellow Ochre. The pine cones are a combination of E35 Chamois and E39 Leather and I used BG96 Bush for the pine needles.

I think the ribbon on the bottom picks up the swirls in the ornament perfectly. I wish the scan would show more of the bling but sadly that is hard to pick up. Thanks for stopping by.
