It's a glitter-iffic ornament! The ornament started as a clear, plastic cube. I coated the inside with floor wax, and then a coat of clear glitter. Next I inked up my stamps using a glue pad, and stamped the left image. Added the glitter. Stamped the right image. More with the glitter. Then I did the center, and I bet you can figure out what I did next....more glitter! I added a pretty tinsel ribbon, and voila! It's ready for my mom's Victorian/Steampunk tree.
I had just re"inked" my glue pad...and it was still pretty wet. I probably should have used some patience and waited, because there was a bit too much glue on my stamps. But, now I know for next time! And there are 3 other sides I can do, right? Now...on to my Creepmas project.
I recently acquired some Stampotique images that I have been coveting for years. Years, I tell you. Well, I finally have a few in my arsenal, and I just couldn't wait to use them!
This is Prom Queen, and I love her. I get her. That look on her face...those clothes. She and I understand each other pretty well. She's frequently just saying "Ugh" to me out of sheer disgust for all the happy-happy-joy-joy that happens this time of year. You get it too, right? Don't tell me I'm the only crazy one that "hears" what my stamps are saying............................................
I colored her with watercolors. And I had a lot of fun playing with the background and the layers of this card. I used pens, paint, ink...if I had more time, I would have really gone hog wild...but I am happy with the end result.
