stampotique challenge - christmas ornament

this week at stampotique, maria has asked us to make a christmas ornament for the stampotique challenge.

i used my bird lady and stamped her on a scrap of watercolor paper.  i added a christmas hat to make her more christmas festive.  for the background i used striped green paper, added some christmas tape, watercolored the background after adding white marker.  the white marker acted as a resist.  i then layered some paper on the top and added lace on the top and bottom.  i used red ribbon to make a small rosette and added a heart brad.  i wrote the word believe in marker and layered it on some patterned paper.  for the hanger i just used a scrap of ribbon and tied knots so it wouldn't pull through.
viola! a last minute christmas ornament.
