Santa on the Tree

Here is a bulb I made using the tissue paper technique.

I stamped the image on tissue paper and then colored it in with colored pencils. I took a clean clear bulb and brushed a coat of Crystal Effects over one side. I set the image in place and starting from the center I brushed outward until the tissue paper was covered with Crystal Effects. I let it dry. Then I ran a circle of Crystal Effects around the image and added micro mini beads. I let that dry and then I added more Crystal Effects to the image and then sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds. You can add bows or ribbons or whatever embellishments you'd like. I haven't added anything yet to this bulb.

I couldn't get a good picture of it to show where the micro beads stop and the glitter begins. It's a VERY pretty glassy effect.

Once the Crystal Effects is dry you can add a single layer of it on top of the glitter and beads to keep it from coming off.

These make wonderful and inexpensive gifts to give. Add the year or your name to the back of the ornament to personalize it even more for the one you're giving it too. You can do this on tissue paper as well and follow the same directions using the Dazzling Diamonds and beads.
Be sure to leave your REAL Christmas wish here and you'll be entered in the drawing for the Shape Boss.
Thank you for stopping by,
