VINTAGE ORNAMENTS

I have a couple more vintage type ornaments for you today. I am keeping these though because I really like how they turned out. I hadn't intended to make them but Kellie Mize from THE DIGI CHICK had some new Vintage Winter Charms digis and I thought they would be perfect paired up with some Spellbinder dies I have. I cut the dies from some bronze colored craft metal. I thought it was a little too shiny so I added some bronze flake paint and dabbed a bit of pitch black alcohol ink on top to make the frames. The images were printed on semi-gloss photo paper and glued to the back of the frame with E-6000 glue. I was in a hurry to get them done so I didn't take pics of the process. Let me know if you want to see how I did it and I will post later. These are the dies I used; Spellbinders Shapeabilities Dies-Fancy Tags Nestabilities -Rectangles and circles (to cut out the inside of the tags)
