Snowflake ornament

Yes folks, we've reached that point in the year where next Christmas is nearer than last!

This beautiful snowflake plaque is one of the new releases for Christmas 2010. It's so lovely that I thought it would be fun to make something that would stick around rather than being here and gone on a card. I've turned this one into a vintage style ornament to hang on the tree.

I used gesso on the whole piece and then added Rub n Buff metallic wax over everything except the snowflakes. Those were treated to a bit of Rock Candy crackle paint and topped off with pearls. The sentiment panel is also coated in crackle paint. Some crystal chain and a metallic cord hanger finish it off.

More details of materials etc in {this post} on my blog if anyone would like them!

Thanks for stopping by!
