On the 7th day of Christmas my SU Demo taught me
How to decorate a ceramic ornament for my tree
1 flat ceramic Ornament, (You can find these at Michaels)
Craft Ink of your choice of colors
Stamps of your choice
Clear Embossing powder
Glassy Glaze Enamel ( I mixed 1 part clear embossing powder with 1 part glassy glaze enamel for this, i found it worked a bit better)
1. Ink up one stamp of your choice with craft ink in the color of your choice. And stamp in onto the ornament where you want it. **TIP: if you make a mistake the images come off super easy with a baby wipe.
2. Use your heat gun to make sure that all of the images are dry, do the same with all of your other images stamp first then dry with your heat gun, if you are stamping over top of other images it is a good idea to dry the bottom layer of ink with your heat gun in between layers of stamping, like in the ornament above, there are blue snowflakes on top of the brown tree.
3. You can also use ink directly on the ceramic ornament to decorate the edge of the ornament this is an optional step, but if you wanted to do it just tilt your craft pad at an angle and tap it on the edges of the ornament
4. Now make sure that all of the images and the edges of your ornament are dry, your craft ink will turn from shiny to opaque when it is dry. **TIP: if using any shade of red including Bravo Burgundy leave your ornament to dry longer as it seems to transfer and smudge alot easier then any of the other colors.
5. Using Versamark, cover the whole ornament with it making sure that if you inked the edges that you versamark the edges as well.
6. Using your clear embossing powder, or glassy glaze enamel or the 1 to 1 mixture of both pour it over your ornament and shake off the excess.
7. Heat up your embossing powder to activate it, and when it is all clear and not too bumpy set your ornament aside to cool off.
8. Tie a ribbon to the top and hang on your tree.
another way to make these are adding 1 part iridescent ice and 1 part glassy glaze enamel
