"Hanging" Christmas Ornament

This week's theme on Mixed Media Monday is "Just Hanging Out". I was inspired to make this Ornament:
Started with a scrolled chipboard ATC frame from Scrapware. Glued on Fantasy Film with Elmer's Glue (pva). Cut out the center and added a second layer and ironed on with parchment paper between the Fantasy Film and the iron.
I wrapped a piece of parchment paper over the edge of the frame and heated with the iron to shrink the fantasy film over the edges.
For the hanging star I inked a star stamp with red StazOn ink, placed two layers of Fusible Film over the stamp, placed down parchment paper and heated with an iron. Cut out the star and make a second one the same way.
Stamped a quote on decorative paper with red StazOn ink and glued to the back of the vintage angel image. Added ribbon, beads and star rhinestones to the piece.
