Ceramic altered ornaments

First of all I have to say these are not the best photos but I was trying to get these done and pics taken for a challenge over at Bella Creations in the Voila Ink group. We were to stamp on anything other than paper. So since I am doing a lot of ornaments right now and also will be doing the Sweet Sentiments Studio Tour show, I wanted to get these done and show you as well to get a head start on Christmas. I had these ceramic ornaments for a few years, I tried a stamping idea that never worked but then a few days ago after seeing the challenge I got a brain fart and dug them out again. I used Alcohol inks (AI's) in Lettuce, Stream and Caramel. On the Stream inked one I also used an old paint brush with a snowflake stencil and dabbled the ink on to get the snowflakes to show up against the lighter background. Oooo works for me. Added the image then when that was dry I applied Diamond dust around the bottom of the snowman and the children"s feet. So sparkly and dreamy....
I have used StazOn ink and coloured in the hollies and the Christmas lights with Bic It permanent markers then applied Stickles for glitz. Added ribbons and ready to go. These would look great with family photos or altered for swaps. I have recently seen them stocked at Michaels so grab them up while you can if you need any before all shapes get taken.
Again I apologize for the poor photos, perhaps red was not the best but you get the gist of it.
Have a super weekend and stay creative.
