My ornament for the challenge!


I am good at cards... I have a hard time with 3-d items and "not cards." There was this challenge over at Sassy cards and scraps to make an ornament for a 6 weeks of inspiration challenge... (I am a HUGE challenge NUT!) So ... here is what I came up with! Everyone knows what a sweetie my Hubby is... He said, "HON, You had better show a picture of the stamp you used or people will think you BOUGHT it!" (AWWW!!!)
So here is the skinny... I bought a glazed ceramic ornament and I used stazon ink. I stamped the image and I colored with with copic markers. Since they are alcohol based, they did some funky stuff on the ornament and the color was not even... but I LOVED the result. Then I used the glitter pens and gel pens to add sparkle and to add the 80 billion dots. Next, I dotted stickles on the background for snow... I mean, he is a snowman, lets put him in his element... right! I had to add the date to keep track of my addiction (for the record)
and added a ribbon to hang it up,
here is my finished product... I added a photo to indulge
my darling! I hope you like it... and I encourage you all to do this... so not hard and they would make lovely gift tags! Don't forget the date!!!

This turned out really well. I have this stamp and it's not the easiest to color. Your results on ceramic are spectacular.

Wow, Dawn, this is amazing! Your husband is right because it looks like it was painted by an artist! I love the effect that the markers had. It looks like it was intended that way. Love the detailing with all of the colored dots lining the edges. So pretty!
