Merry Season Ornament

 I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving but now the countdown and rush for Christmas begins.  I made this ornament for Sweet Pea Stamps Christmas Gift Contest.  I decided to make an ornament from 2 pieces of plexi glass. I used Staz ~ On Jet Black Ink to stamp the pretty Merry Season image on the plexi glass and I decorated it all from behind with glitter and used glass paints for her skin tone. I then put metallic blue paper in between the plexi glass sheets and glued them together, but I also added snowflakes and glitter to the back of the ornament before I finished gluing it. I then added the pearls for bubbles to the front to give it dimension. (Usually I have the ink side facing outward but I have been finding with making my key chains that even that can rub off so I that is why I decided to do it the opposite way.) To finish it I added the pretty white organza ribbon to hang it from. (You might see that some of the glue was not quite dry or cloudy in the pic... that is one drawback to making these sometimes it takes quite awhile for the glue to dry.)  I hope you like it. :)
