Deck the Halls

It's holiday decor season, and nothing says "Christmastime in the City" quite like The Ink Pad's exclusive NYC-themed stamps, used to decorate festive baubles!
I made my own ornament-shaped templates and used them to trace shapes onto sturdy white cardstock, then i blended some of my favorite analogous combinations of Distress Oxide Inks to create an ombre effect inside each shape. I used Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber on the round ornament; Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries on the heart; and Spun Sugar with Spiced Marmalade on the oblong.
 
Then I used Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink to stamp the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty from Michelle Ward's Manhattan Map Stamp Set onto the largest ornament; the Bridge from the Skyline Stamp Set onto the heart shaped ornament and the iconic New York Taxi (also in the Skyline set) onto the round ornament. 
For extra glam, I added Eyelet Outlet Star Brads to each, and used Eyelet Outlet Clear Swirl Bling to "hang" the ornaments on a starry pink background from one of our fun and funky TIP Wallpaper Assortment Packs.
