Flourishes - December Beautiful World Tour - Add Some Shine!


Hello everyone! We have another fabulous Beautiful World Tour for you this month.  Our hostess is Naomi, and she has challenge the Beautiful World Team to...Shine!!
It's time to travel the world and see how each designer chose how to add some shine to their Flourishes stamped creations.
As always, you will need to leave a comment on each designers blog by 31st December to be in with a chance of winning a FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!!
If you arrived here from Kathy's blog in Australia then you're at the right destination.
Here is my creation...
I decided to make a festive wall hanger, which could also be used as a large gift tag.
First, I cut two ovals with one of the Spellbinders 'Grand Decorative Ovals'. Onto one of the ovals I stamped 'Happy Holidays' from the 'Naturally Merry' stamp set.  I then stamped three poinsettias from the beautiful 'Poinsettia and Pine' set. I coloured my poinsettias and foliage with ProMarkers, then cut them out and layered them on top of one another. To add some 'shine', I covered my berries, holly leaves and poinsettia stamen with glossy accents.  I then added three red glass dewdrops to the bottom of my design.
To complete, I added some glitter to my poinsettia leaves and snow accents to my pine branches.
I then glued both ovals together and inserted my ribbon and bow hanger between them. Finally, I tied two silver bells to my bow.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope you enjoyed your Beautiful World Tour.

I would like to enter my hanger into the following challenges...
