Blue Christmas Bauble

It's Merry Monday time again.

This week wonderful Wendy has chosen our challenge.

Come see what she chose.

How elegant!

Here's what I did.

I inked and embossed the bauble with silver
then colored with the Night of Navy Blendabilities.

To give the ornament the look of glass, I smacked it with VersaMark
and heat embossed with some clear embossing powder.

Then I used a silver Signo Gel Pen to color the top and holly 
to add some extra shine.

The embossed back panel was waiting in the UFO pile for a home.

I added lots of itty, bitty rhinestones and a little bow
to finish it all off.

With all the metallic, I'm going to share this at

Let's see what gorgeous blue and silver/gray ornaments you can create this week. 

Don't forget to share them with us at Merry Monday.

I'm so glad you could stop by!
