Functional and sweet! 2-1/4" diameter, clear, flat-backed, glass disc paperweight kits.
Lockhart Cherries image was stamped and colored with Copic markers. I added a touch of glitter with Atyou glitter pens (also from Copic). If you use water-based markers or water-based stamping ink for the steps outlined in this post (using Glossy Accents) the colors may bleed. Copic markers are alcohol based and the ink stays put. I used Memento Tuxedo Black for my stamping ink.
I dispensed a layer of Glossy Accents onto the glass disc back and using my finger smeared the glue completely over the back, then pressed into the stamped image. I used an old credit card to squeegie/swipe out any air bubbles between the glass disc and the piece of cardstock. Finished sealing the cardstock edges to the glass disc using my fingers, and used a baby wipe to periodically clean my fingers and the glass of the glue.
Instead of a stamped image, try using an image from a magazine, or a photo - but test the adhesive you plan to use on a spare photo - you'll want to check for any adverse reactions between your planned adhesive and the photo ink that was used to process the photo. A 2-1/4-inch circle punch works great if you are not using the enclosed white cardstock circles.
Cork backing was adhered using Glossy Accents as well, and presto ~ instant gift!
Today's post is a partial re-post of a creation I did back in 2008 before I used typepad - today's post was done at a customer's request. Thank you!
