December Pin Up Challenge - Get Ornamental
For this month’s challenge at Bombshell Stamps, the Pin Up Challenge was to “Make it Ornamental”.
Instead of creating a paper ornament, I’ve been wanting to try creating my own. So I purchased a plastic ornament at Joann’s and filled it with Elmer’s glue. *Note - use floor polish if you want it to dry translucent.
After swirling it around a bit to make sure all of the sides of the inside of the ornament were covered, I poured out the excess glue and folded a piece of paper to funnel the glitter into the ornament. And then I shook! I repeated and tapped out the excess glitter and glue.
After it dried I replaced the cap.
Originally my idea was to stamp on the plastic with Stazon, however after many failed attempts, I gave in. *Note - Stazon comes off of plastic with lighter fluid.
Instead, I stamped the image I wanted (I used the Tattoo sentiment from the Sacred Heart set) and colored and cut it out. Then I adhered it to the domed surface with Ranger's Glossy Accents and set to dry. Because this project was giving me such trouble, I decided to keep it very simple and just add ribbon at the top.
Overall I am pleased with the outcome! I think it turned out better than I originally planned because I got to incorporate more color this way. Have you tried this project or something similar?
