Purple Snowman Ornament - QKR





Ready for another Christmas ornament? I thought it would be fun to have this adorable snowman image in the center of a large chipboard snowflake. I started by painting the large chipboard snowflake with some pale purple acrylic paint and then going back over it with some glittery glaze. Gotta have some shimmer on my snowflake.... LOL

While the paint and glaze were drying, I stamped and colored this Selling Snowflakes image, and then I cut him out. All I needed was a darker purple background for the snowman to pop out against the chipboard, so I added the dark purple oval.

What color would you use if you were making this fun ornament? I chose purple because it was fun and different. Would you go with blue, or would you go with something wild like hot pink? :-)

How cute Holly. I was just thinking of making a snowflake ornament today.

I always think of what my tree looks like and what would accent that best.
