Kitty Ornament (Ike's Art image)

Hello, everyone, I'm back again today with a little Christmas ornament.  This is my second kitty ornament!  I am making three ornaments for Brian, one from each of our kitties. Today's ornament is from Honeydew. You can see Snowie's ornament here. So I will have one more kitty ornament to make, from Kiwi, so stay tuned!

I chose an adorable image from Ike's Art called Xmas Kitty Corner.  I printed two of them (flipped one) so I could attach one on each side of the acetate.  I coloured them both with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy-cut.  Although you can't see it very well in the photos, probably because of the acetate, I added loose white glitter to the white areas of the hat.

I made the glittery silver frame using my Nellie's Multiframe Squares. I made two of them, one for each side.  I used two squares of acetate, on the front and back. For the top of the ornament, I used my Nellie's Multiframe Circle and then punched with a hole-punch so I could add some twine. This was a fun project and I'm happy with the result!  I think Brian will love it!  

And of course, my blog post would not be complete without my little helper - Eli the Elf - he was there by my side the whole time, helping where he could, and he wanted to pose in the photo so I could play along in DL.ART's Second Annual Elf Antics Linky Party!

These are so cute, reminds me of a pic I have of my cat wearing a santa hat! I'm surprised you could print on acetate...I assumed the printer ink would just rub off so I've never tried it but I might have to reconsider now.
