I followed the steps for the technique, as outlined in the book, and created my ink palette. Using the ink palette I decorated two plastic ornaments that I purchased at Michael's.
In the center of the round ornament is the larger snowflake from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Mini Snowflake Rosettes Decorative Strip die. The snowflake was inked with Distress Ink in Salty Ocean and the embellished with Ranger Stickles in Stardust. I tinted the rhinestones to match using my alcohol ink palette. The Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon was dyed with Distress Stains in Faded Jeans and Broken China.
The square ornament was designed to look like a present and is decorated with pearls and rhinestones in varying colors. The Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon was dyed with Distress Stain in Fired Brick and Worn Lipstick.
I love that I was able to create pearls and rhinestones in such a variety of different colors using only plain clear rhinestones and plain white pearls! It certainly would have been more costly to purchase all of the different colors individually. I'll definitely be looking for other ways to use this ink palette!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Now go make something!
