An Ornament of Many Colors - Design Dollies Challenge!

As you are already aware, I am guest designing for the Design Dollies this month and today I get to show off my second challenge! This one is the Color Challenge and let me tell you, it was a bit tricky for me! The challenge was to use FOUR colors, specifically, red, green, orange, and blue! Yikes! That's a LOT of colors!

I decided to pull them together to create a fun ornament using my new alcohol inks!

I inked a glass slide and then stamped and misted the stars with a terra cotta (orange) ink and a very very pale blue glimmer mist before mounting them with Helmar's liquid dimensional glue dots. Have you used that stuff? It's kinda awesome, I gotta say!

I finished the piece by edging the top and bottom with copper tape and wrapping a fun shiny blue cord around it a few times!

This was actually a LOT of fun to make and I think it would be a perfect little gift topper or it would look lovely presented on a bottle of wine as a hostess gift!

This last shot I just had to share with you because I think it is SO FREAKING COOL! No. For reals, though. Check out that reflection! It caught it so perfectly and I just love it!!!!

So you should totally come on over and join the challenge at Design Dollies! Look what you could win!!!



On another note, PLEASE come back tomorrow, as I will be participating in a super fun Blog Bounce with Skipping Stones Design! It's Blogging for Boobies! We will be showing off a brand new stamp set and also auctioning our creations off to raise money to help fight breast cancer! I hope you will join in the fun!!!

  3. Ohh this is beautiful. I can see this being a charm for a necklace. Beautiful.
    That photo with the reflection is awesome.
    The photo gave me an idea. Mask the glass with mini butterflies and then ink the glass. How pretty would that look!!!
