Alcohol Ink Holiday Ornaments

I made a bunch of Alcohol Ink Ornaments in preparation for a craft fair in November (2015).
They were my most popular item and received a lot of wonderful comments.
I plan on making a lot more for next year and maybe giving some as gifts, too.

I experimented with different colors, but all had either silver or gold metallics. I hadn't used the metallic alcohol inks until one of my students requested them. I absolutely love the way they mix with the regular alcohol inks....they sort of float on top and move around and take longer to dry. I think it's a very cool result and very appropriate for the holidays.

The display I used is my ever popular cupcake stand. I hung them on each tier and then wrapped LED lights around the display. Very festive!
