Merry Monday Ornaments

Evening folks.
I'm having a stay at home Wednesday. Normally I meet up with a friend and after a meal we go to a craft class but as she had a funeral to go to early this afternoon and we are on standby for looking after our Grandson, our daughter is almost 40 weeks pregnant, I have been crafting at home.
I noticed that the current Merry Monday challenge is Ornaments and as I was sorting through my un posted cards I saw this and thought I would enter it.

This OLC was made by masking off the baubles with die cuts from Post its and a little extra for the hanger, then stamping a pine branch stamp with Pine Needles, Chipped Sapphire DI and good old fashioned water to give the soft effect of a Christmas tree bough. Once the ornaments were painted with more DI and well dry, they were masked with the leftover outers of the post its and embossed with various stamps and gold EP. I added a few more branches to go over the coloured baubles. Sentiment from STAMPlorations was embossed with gold EP.
