Koi Pool Ornament

     It's Bombshell Challenge day again and this month we have a really fun challenge going.  Since it is the holiday season, our challenge is to create an ornament.  I knew just what I wanted to do.  I have several koi ornaments on my tree and I wanted to add to my koi collection.


     I stamped my koi on white cardstock then masked him and stamped the ripples in the water.  My image was then colored with Prisma pencils and highlighted with my newest favorite white pen, the sharpie finpoint paint pen.  The water background actually extends to the gold mat but it is covered with stickles so it is hard to see.  

     I inserted the image into a flat round plastic ornament added adhesive rhinestoners to the outside to look like air bubbles and then added matching rhinestones around the top of the ornament and threaded it with a gold organza ribbon.

     Please remember you can join us in this challenge by creating your own ornament using a bombshell image and linking up to our blog post HERE  and you can have another chance to win by adding your ornament to the HERE on the Bombshell Forum.  The winner will receive their choice of a stamp set.
