Hi, I've been playing with alcohol inks again today.
I diecut an ornament base out of metal sheet and ran it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I love the texture. I've used the same folder on the base card.
Instead of pouncing the ink on with a blending tool, I poured it on and moved the base around.
I painted the top with a layer of glossy accents so the ink doesn't scratch off.
I diecut another base from snippets of black card and glued it onto the back so that when you hang these on the tree you won't see the messy back. I've secured the ornaments to the card with foam dots and double sided tape which should be easy enough for the recipient to remove.
Here's another pic, it's tricky getting the light right!
I'm linking up to the holiday challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More.
Snippets means I can visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is anything diecut with a manual machine like a big shot or a cuttlebug.
Edited to add: I'm also linking up to the challenge at Keep it Simple where the theme is no stamps.
