Fabric Angel Christmas Ornament

Happy Holidays from the Sin City Stamps Design Team!

It's Karen's turn to share her fabulous idea for stamping an ornament. Follow along step by step as she shows just how easy it is to make. Try this trendy mixed media idea and stamp directly onto muslin fabric.

1. Cut a rectangle of muslin fabric 4x5" and use black ink to stamp the Phoebe Art Doll image.

2. Cut 2 additional rectangles of muslin fabric to add stability to the finished project. Next, pin the layers together and use a sewing machine to sew a stitch 1/2" around the edge. Trim away the excess to create a 1/4" seam.

3. Remove the nozzle from the bottle of mist and use a paintbrush to color the dress and hair. Apply flesh color chalk to the face and blend pink chalk into the cheeks. 

4. Fray the edges of the muslin fabric by using a pin to carefully loosen the threads. Separate the weave and gently remove rows of thread to create the fringe. Lightly apply a dusting of brown chalk along the edge of the fringed fabric to give it an aged vintage appearance.

5. Embellish the dress with gold beads and adhere a piece of gold trim for her halo. Use gold embossing powder to color the wooden accent word and heat set. Attach it over the lower section of the dress with liquid adhesive.

6. Stamp three pine branches onto muslin fabric, color, and, cut out.

7. Attach a loop of ribbon to the top of the muslin for hanging. Embellish the top of the tag with three pine branches and a wooden snowflake.

8. Finally, carefully slice through the fabric on both sides of the dress. (1 1/2")  Weave a piece of organza fabric (5x7") through the openings.  Adjust the folds of the fabric to create the wings and trim the edges to the desired length and shape.
