Christmas in July : Fun Ornaments with Peachy Keen Stamps

Hello everyone!!  Today I get to share some fun ornaments on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog that I made with the Christmas Tag Mini's from Peachy Keen Stamps and some wonderful little acrylic shapes.   Here is a quick look at the four that I have made so far.....

I started out by stamping the back side of the ornaments with the image and some Stazon Jet Black ink.  I then colored in the images with some acrylic paint and a fine paint brush from the same side they are stamped on.  Here is the front side of this one.....I like that it doesn't show my mistakes as bad on the front as it does on the back.  ;)

After they were completely dry, I mixed some red paint and green paint with Mod Podge and then thinly painted the back of them, in an even layer as possible, so that the main part of the bulb is semi-transparent.  I added some gold and silver paint pen to the tops of the bulb (on the front side) and then tied them up with a little bit of glimmer twine from The Twinery.

So, what do you think??  Are you ready to get a jump start on your tree decorations, too??  I can't wait for Christmas time to get here so that I can see these babies in action!!  I would love it if you would jump over to the Peachy Keen Stamps blog to leave me a little love over there if you like these little ornaments.

Hugs,
Amy
