Customized Ornaments!

Hi Everyone
This week Sweet Sassy Diva's design team challenge was to make either last minute stocking stuffers or last minute gifts. I have seen a lot of the blogs doing the glitter ornaments and I just think they turn out so beautiful. I tried something different with some ornaments that I have had for years but never use them on my tree because they were so plain. I took frosted ornaments and used a Q-tip and embossing ink. Using the Q-tip I wrote on the ornaments and then used embossing powder to coat where I had written on the ornament. Then using the heating tool, I heated the embossing powder and this is how they turned out.
This 1st one is one that I since to my circle pal:
When doing the heat embossing you do need to be careful not to heat it for too long, I did burn a hole in one of the ones I was making. Here is another one for a lady I work with.
Hope you all enojoyed. Thanks

Rebecca
