JustRite Stamper’s Christmas Ornament
I have started early on Christmas ornaments this year. JustRite Stamper’s is sponsoring a challenge to use their stamps with “glitter” this week, and my, how I love glitter for Christmas!
I’d bought some blank bulbs several years back for a project and had some left to experiment with this project. This Christmas tree was upstairs in the storage room, ready for a plug-in. My kids were wondering why I was plugging it in early!
My kids had some flexible modeling clay which flexible until frozen. I just pressed it down into the substance (taking care to clean the stamp thoroughly when I was finished).
I cupped it in my hand to pre-round it to a shape similar to the ball, pressing it gently against the ball using Stayz-On Ink. (I tried several of these, and the technique seemed to work best with image stamps or stamps with large lettering.)
While the ink was still wet, I poured on half copper embossing powder, half MS copper glitter, dusting away any strays
with a brush.
The image was very pretty after embossing, but I couldn’t resist adding some color to this one.
I used permanent brown markers for the house, red stickles and MS glitter for the bird, yellow fabric paint for the beak, white embossing powder and stickles for the ice and snow, and more stickles for the holly.
I loved how it looked with light behind it:
