PKS Challenge 46 :: 3-D Objects :: Ornaments

My project for Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge this week was full of lessons learned!
  1. It's really hard to stamp on a round or curved glass object! Finally used the back of my hand as a stamping block. Don't laugh! It worked best of anything I tried and I tried a lot of stuff LOL.
  2. Stazon stamps onto a glass ornament better if you ink and then stamp off before stamping the ornament.
  3. Sometimes Stazon dries really quick and sometimes it doesn't.
  4. The clear glass ornaments from Walmart have a thin layer of something coating them. I assume to maybe keep them from shattering if dropped. But if you get cleaning solution on them it starts peeling off and very easily at that.
  5. To do the glitter ornament thing it is probably best to use a floor cleaner with a wax in it. The pledge future cleaner I bought was the multi purpose one (didn't realize at the time there was a difference) and well the glitter now comes out the top like a salt shaker now that it is dry LOL.
  6. The Stazon ink stayed on my stamp a lot faster than the glass :( No matter how I have cleaned my stamp or how quickly after stamping I can NOT get the Stazon off LOL. My poor stamp will never be the same :( 
  7. I do not think I like to use Stazon!
  8. I spent WAY to much time stamping and wiping off over and over on those dang ornaments (we're talking about 2 hours worth...crazy I know!)
Here is only the last stamp off sheet LOL
And now my poor badly stained stamp
And the finished product
Something so simple should not have taken me hours LOL
