I'm taking part in a Christmas ornament swap over on UK Stampers.We can specify whether we would like traditional or modern colour schemes and then we make an ornament for each person in our group. A couple of people in my group wanted modern colours and the rest opted for traditional. I tried for a basic design that would work either way and came up with these microscope slide ornaments.
The traditional colour scheme ones have a vintage feel with copper tape, vintage buttons, a bit of wire work and a jingle bell and bow to finish. The backs are textured with a Cuttlebug folder rather than being a second glass slide.
The modern colour scheme ones are a bit more "disco"! I combine pink and aqua for the stamping and then added glitter, bugle beads and a star shaped gem as finishing touches. Silver thread tied through a second short row of beads at the top provides a hanger. Again, the back is textured with a Cuttlebug folder but it's silver this time - I used aluminium tape stuck to a piece of card and used a strip of the same tape to seal the edges of the ornament.
