Clear Ornament

Hi everyone! We had a little blast of winter here last night and it put me in the mood to make a little winter ornament. I picked up these clear glass ornaments last year at Michaels after Christmas...they were CHEAP! I stamped this little pure innocence girl "Flurry of Love" from My Favorite Things on the ornament with Stazon ink.

I colored her outfit from the backside of the glass with my copics. As you can see the blending ability of colors is a little different on non porous surfaces and I find I needed to reach for a little bolder colors. For example her face I colored with E13. Her jacket is a combo of BG13, BG18.

After I was done coloring I used my rock candy crackle accents to cover the front of the glass. It dried with that neat crackle effect which was hard to capture in the photo but looks great in real life! Final touches of liquid applique for the snow and I was done!
A sweet little gift item that I can tuck inside a card.

Enjoy your day!
