So yesterday I tried making an ornament using a transparency and glass ball ornament. Now I was thinking that sharpie markers were going to work but they really didn't show up like I wanted. So then I remembered I once painted on the back of a transparency so I gave that a try! I stamped the Happy Crabby image on the front and painted on the back. I also had some sparkle glass paint I used on the crab and on the snow to give it a nice winter effect. I put the sparkle on the front and on the back to see if it made a difference and I think it gave more of a 3d effect on the front. I then printed out a 2.5 inch circle and then positioned the painted crab within the circle and then cut out. The one thing I did was cut the circle a little to small, for when I curled it up to put inside the ornament it kept on falling forward and backward. Luckly the prongs from the top hold the image in place so it shouldn't fall anymore. So remember to cut the circle a tad bigger than what you outlined and also when curling us a pen or pencil to curl your image around so you don't crease the transparency. All in all I really like how this came out! I think I may make some ornaments for christmas this year. I wanted to get some fake snow and toss that in the ornament too! You could even write sayings or decorate the outside of the ornament too. I was going to draw some snowflakes in the background on the transparency but I couldn't get it to look right so I left them out!

I love this! I know the pics don't do it justice because it appears that this is actually painted on the bulb. No doubt the artificial snow would really set it off perfectly. Great use of your adorable stamps!
