Framed Vellum Snowman

Here's another submission for the Holiday Bazaar over at  Unscripted Sketches.  Each year I create handmade ornaments for each of my family members (brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews...lots and lots of them!)  To create this framed snowman, I hand painted the snowman onto vellum and mounted them behind green cardstock. I also hand cut the ovals in the green cardstock. Using veneer, I made individual frames and punched holes in them so I could add a hanger.  When they hang on a lighted Christmas tree, the vellum allows the light to shine through and it creates an interesting effect.
