CAS Ornament



Here's a card made for the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today - it's Diana, aka mayodino – I enjoyed her entire gallery, but especially the sponged designs, so I chose this ornament card to CASE.  
I'm also entering this in the fun challenge, Addicted to CAS  #2 - Code Word Bauble!
I sponged a Spellbinders Nestie circle, added some die-cut snowflakes and spritzed white acrylic paint on it with a toothbrush.  If you're going to try this, I suggest thinning down the paint with a few drops of water, otherwise the paint will be too thick to "spritz" properly.  Also do a test run on a piece of scrap paper just to get the feel of what it takes to get a nice even "spritz"!
 The top of the ornament was made with shiny silver card stock, the upper edge cut with an oval Nestie and the bottom cut with a scalloped oval Nestie with some added score lines.  
I used black wire for the loop at the top (twisted the wire around a paintbrush handle in order to achieve a more perfect circle shape) and “hung” the ornament with twine.  
The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, A Cocoa Kind of Christmas - I love the font Korin used in this set!

Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles, Ovals, Scalloped Ovals
