16th Year of Ornaments - Manger

This is the 16th year I have made Christmas ornaments. I wanted to do these microscope slide ornies this year but was having trouble finding/deciding on an image appropriate for a 1.5" x 1.5" ornament. Digi's to the rescue! This is a digital image from FireCracker Designs by Pamela called Away in a Manager. Because it is digital, I was able to scale it perfectly to my needs.

I colored it with Copics, masked the "sky" off and sponged 2 shades of brown for the floor. Then I masked the "floor" and baby off and sponged in 3 shades of blue for the sky. All that was left to do was assemble the parts. Now just 34 more to make!

NOTE: Be sure to place your FireCracker Designs by Pamela orders early! They will be closed from December 15th to the first of the year.
