Allsorts challenge week 373 - Anything but a card

Another week and another challenge here at Allsorts.
For week 373, Helene has chosen the theme of Anything but a card?!?!

Our sponsor this week is Lets Create

Struggled for this challenge and came upon this idea.
Before Christmas last year I bought these wooden items and as the samples in the craft shop were using Distress Inks, I had a go, my attempts went in the bin and so nearly, did those that were left, but I put them away and then found them again during my craft room re-organisation, a couple of weeks ago.
I used VersaMark watermark stamp pad and sprinkled them with WOW embossing power and used my heat gun and was quite pleased with the result.
The top 3 are using Metalic gold sparkle
The second line uses Metalic Platinam sparkle
then Apple red, which I am not really keen on for the bells image
The first two on the third line uses Silver bells sparkle and the last one is a cosmic shimmer, but it doesn't.
I am sorry about the photo's as the glittery effect does not seem to show at all.
I have not yet decided how I am going to use them but at least I have used them so I am pleased about that.
Have a great week everyone.

YAY - way to go with the embossing powders on the ornaments. I'm sure you'll think of something to do with them now they are coated.

Oh Kath, you crack me up with laughter, I just read your mermaid comment, did you forget you posed for me...LOL, the red cheeks are from embarrassment from you, they are the veins joined together. Anyway thanks for the chuckle and smile on this cold dreary day...luv n hugs.,.. {aNNie}

Would have loved to see what you tossed, as I bet they would look good to everyone else! These look very pretty, and I have issues with DI paints too (prob'ly cause I don't use them enough to become proficient with 'em). These little wooden cuties will look pretty on presents, or some of the other projects that you do. You did a terrific job on them. I'm glad you found them again. Will enjoy seeing how you decide to use them. TFS & Hugs

These look gorgeous Kath and would look fabulous on your christmas tree. I've thought about buying some of these wooden ornaments but never seem to get round to it - must give it a go xx
