Angel Ornaments with Character Construction

Hi Dreamers!
How is your week going?  I am having a great week with lots of creative time!  I  made some pretty Angel Ornaments this weekend with  stamps from the Vintage Christmas set by Character Construction.  Won't they look great on the tree?!

The bases of the ornaments were cut with Spellbinders- Labels four and Labels Eighteen from a dark cherry CS.  The Angels from Set # 4  were stamped on some backgrounds that I made with Distress reinkers and Metallic stains.  See the instructions for the backgrounds here.  Stamp the Angels with Black Soot Distress Ink and distress with Forest Moss DI.

On this tag, I tied a bow in satin ribbon and layered it with a piece of white tulle.  Paper roses were added.

On the second ornament, I added a sheer red ribbon, the tulle and a scrap of lace.  Buttons and stars were added for embellishments.  Isn't this angel just too sweet!??

So that the back looked nice too, I added a die cut piece of gold glittery DP.
