Merry & Bright

An ornament using all the ornament layers from Papertrey Ink's Make It Market kit: Tinsel & Tags. All the cardstock is Stamper's Select White except for the snow layer which is Enchanted Evening. I used the small banner with the Merry & Bright sentiment stamped with Paris Dusk Memento Ink.

Snow Globe with Magnetized Movement

Simon Says Use Watercolors. The globe (half of a plastic ornament with the tab snipped off), house, deer and trees are from Papertrey Ink's Make It Market kit: Tinsel & Tags. The snow globe is glued to the rim (open circle) part of a one quart mason jar lid. The magnet doesn't work if the seal part of the lid is included. So if you make one as a jar topper, don't fill the jar with anything liquid : D. Since most of the elements are painted green, I decided to include it in the Artful Times Green Challenge also.

I painted the little house with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks smooshed on the craft mat spritzed with water and painted on with a water brush. The doors are colored with Barn Door The base is painted with Papertrey Ink Fine Linen and Iced Spruce Distress Ink. The trees are cut off the circle, painted with Iced Spruce Distress Ink and stamped with the small tree with Papertrey Ink Pinefeather. Three trees are folded and glued together to make them 3-Dimensional.

But wait, there's more.
The deer moves (with the help of a magnet) under the base.

I covered the base of the deer with Glossy Accents and then dipped it into a small pile of iron filings.
