Founder's Circle Swap Tutorial #2

*Scroll down to see Tutorial #1!

6. Put the third Vintage Ornament stencil in place and use mask to cover portion of original soft suede ornament that you want to protect.
7.Repeat sponging process using Bermuda Bay ink.
8. Finish off top of ornament with Soft Suede sponge dauber.

9. I used the Soft Suede In Color Marker to draw in the strings for the ornaments.
10.The Berry Merry stamp set was used to stamp the image on the center ornament (Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry), and on the Bermuda Bay ornament (Encore Silver ink pad).
11. The flourish on the Rich Razzleberry ornament was done using a stencil again along with a sponge dauber and the Encore Silver Ink Pad.
12. The clear rhinestone brad was used for the center of the Bermuda Bay ornament.
13. Stamp Merry Christmas sentiment using Soft Suede ink and the Christmas Greetings Stamp set.

Hope that this helps out a little...I'm now practicing some video tutorial so watch for them soon!
