Another Christmas Bauble Decoration

Here's another Christmas Bauble i have made.

FRONT


BACK

To make this bauble, i cut two pieces of the bauble shape out of acetate. Because i don't have any blending solution for alcohol inks, i improvised with white spirit, the only thing i have to hand.

So, i wiped the acetate over with the white spirit, and dripped 3 different coloured alcohol inks on to it, and just let it spread.
I left it to dry, and then spray mounted the two pieces together with a piece of white paper sandwiched between. This shows the colours up much better.

I then added stickers, and overthetop braiding. along with a plastic and a cardboard flower.

I really like this one, and may decide to keep it, if i don't have any time or energy to make more.

June here at bootifulstampz is being very generous and giving one stamp away a day for the rest of November.
June is also doing an altered jigsaw contest too, so be sure to visit.

Love it! I must give these boyo's a try - I'm not getting a tree this year so I'm dressing up the window's instead. This sounds like a nice affordable way to freshen things up. Plus, I love handmade decs...

The ornaments you are making are gorgeous! I've only done the one. I'm going to try some "inchie cubes" for which I got a template. They are looking pretty cute as ornaments.
there is a message for you on my blog under "A Real Person...A Real Award".

Beautiful baubles Margaret, and great idea putting white inbetween to show the colours up more. I've never used white spirit as I've heard it can be a bit sticky - but as you've sandwiched the two pieces that's not a problem - great result!

Margaret your Christmas Baubles are gorgeous... I like the idea of the acetate with alcohol inks. I had used the shiny photo paper too, that comes up well.

Thanks for sharing.
