Heated Up Love with a Valentine Ornament

  Happy Wednesday everyone! leslierahye here with a Valentine Ornament made with the DIY Portrait Ornament kit. These ornaments are not just for winter holidays! Be sure to check out the give away opportunity at the end of the post.  Here's how we get started...
I began by rubbing red pigment ink onto craft card stock. Pigment ink has a slower drying time and will hold onto the Emboss Enamel longer.Sprinkle the Ruby Red Slippers powder onto the moist ink and heat set. I did the Ruby Red Slippers twice. Next rub red pigment ink on the backside and sprinkle Mermaid Tears Emboss Enamel on the back side and heat set. Allow to cool.

With heart punches, cut out your heart confetti. [LOVE the sparkle here!]

On red paper, with your favorite script stamp--I have 3 that i use regularly for a visual texture in my artwork--once again use pigment ink to ink your stamp and then sprinkle with 24K Gold Emboss Enamel. Heat set and punch out more confetti.

Prepare the pieces of your globe frame. For the center piece, rub both sides of the chipboard with the Enamel Powder Adhesive Fluid. Sprinkle with 24K Gold and heat set. When the center piece cools down rub red ink along the edges of the frame.On the globe frames, rub Enamel Powder Adhesive Fluid and sprinkle with Ruby Red Slippers and heat set. Once cooled, with Pigment Ink stamp the script stamp onto the Ruby Red Slippers. Dust text with Micro Black Emboss Enamel, knock off the excess and heat set.
Stack the globes and frames according to the directions, add in confetti and glitter. With Glastique as an adhesive, coat chipboard and globe edges. Hold in place with clothes pins.

 Add a bit of lace and some hemp string for an ornament hanger!
