Kitty Ornament (Newton's Nook stamp)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my project, I would like to welcome my newest follower - samanthadesigns - thank you for joining me!  For everyone waiting for the announcement of my candy winner, I will be back later today with the name of the lucky winner, so stay tuned!

You all know I love playing along in the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge and this time it's a Christmas theme.  I thought an ornament would be purr-fect!  So I decided to make a little kitty ornament for Brian from his cat Snowie for Christmas. This is the first time I have tried an ornament and I am so happy with how it turned out!  I know Brian's going to love it!


I stamped the kitty from Newton's Nook Newton's Holiday Mischief on acetate and die-cut into a circle with my Nellie's Multiframe Circles.  Then I coloured it with my Sharpies and a white marker. I wanted the kitty to look like Snowie (you can see her on my left sidebar).

I've had these glass ornaments for so many years, I can't even remember how long ago I bought them, but I had big intentions at the time and never did use them - until now!  So I filled the bottom of the ornament with some "snow" and then inserted Newton into the ornament.  I added some silver twine and a red bow!


Here's another photo showing the ornament with my new little elf!  This is Elfis and he is the twin brother to Eli - I am playing along in DL.ART's Second Annual Elf Antics Linky Party!
