12 Ornaments for Christmas day 9, Altered Ceramic Ornament....

12 Ornaments for Christmas Day 9, Altered Ceramic Ornament...



This was a plain ceramic ornament that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, they are found in the Christmas Crafts by the other paintable ceramics.
For this ornament I stamped the Flaky Friends with black staz-on onto tissue paper, then I colored them in with colored pencils.
I placed the tissue over the ornament to see where I wanted the placement to be then traced around the ornament then cut out on the inside of the pencil line, this made the tissue a tad smaller than the ornament.
Next I spread on some Crystal Effects and placed the tissue paper on top then smoothed it on with my fingertip.
Then I spread more Crystal Effects over the tissue paper and dipped the ornament into fine glitter, made a ribbon hanger and I was done.
I did take one extra step and lightly sealed it to help hold the glitter on.

This was a super fun ornament to make and the cost was very reasonable they are two for $1.00, then on sale for 40% off. I sure hope I can make it to the day after Christmas sales and get a few items for next year. Do you take part in the day after sales?
Happy Stamp Day!

this is just too neat!! have you tried stamping directly onto those ornaments? they feel sort of porous.
