Him Diamond

Hello Nomad Friends.  It's hot, damn hot!!  But it's still July and the Christmas spirit is flowing nicely.  I have made a Rudolf ornament, and it's sooooo cute!  I know it's an ornament, rather than a tag cos I decorated the backside to look exacerly like the front, so as he spins idly on the tree he will be cute from every direction.......  I said to my man 'look, isn't it cute!!'.  He gave me the look!  Not the 'Wow darling, that's amazing, what a fabulous artist you are!' look.  The other one!!  It's July, why are you making Christmas things??  Well, Jul i Juli of course!  We artists are so misunderstood.

Can you feel the bling tonight ♫🎝♬♫♫🎝 OK, it's not night, it's a beautiful sunny HOT day.  Did I mention the heat??

To make a da rudolf I cut two pieces of pizza box and two pieces of Papirdesign Tur I Skogen patterned paper using a bigz reindeer die.  I wanted it to be a sturdy little ornament, hence the double pizza, and the same back and front so two pieces of the patterned paper.

I used these half pearls and snowflake chipboards, also from Papirdesign.  I wanted red pearls so coloured two of the cream ones with Hot Chili promarker.

I used Sunflower promarker to colour the antlers and also go around the edge of my ornament.  I added glitter glue to the antlers and a bit of red ric rak ribbon around his neck.  I stuck the red pearls on his nose and the blingy snowflake on his belly.  Then I thought about a hanger.......  A hole in the head seemed a bit unseasonal so I decided to pierce his ear instead!!  A piece of christmas ribbon and a blingy brad with a little bit of glue for added security and hopefully Rudolf will be hanging around for years.  For the brad on the back I cut off the little leggies and just glued it on his ear over the end of the ribbon. 

Thanks for dropping by.  I'm off to find a huge ice cream.  Hugz
