I love the way the Twinkle Towns Stamp Set mixes and matches to create decorative ornaments or solid ones. So many ways to create beautiful holiday ornaments! I added a stamped town image to the stamped oranment and watercolored the image to bring it to life.
For the resist embossed background, I stamped the branch and the pine needles from the Twinkle Towns Stamp Set on watercolor cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the images with white embossing powder. I applied Evergreen Bough Distress Ink over the background using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I spritzed the background with water and let it air dry.
While the background dried, I stamped the the ornament and town on a scrap of watercolor cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder. I colored in the image with a small paintbrush dampened with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink, Barn Door Distress Ink, Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I colored in the top of the ornament with the Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen and die cut the image with the coordinating Twinkle Towns Die.
I adhered the ornament to the card with glue dots and added a thin line of Glossy Accent from the ornament to the branch and placed some silver twine along the line of glue. I tied a bow and secured it to the top of the string on the branch with a dab of glue.
