Faux Dichroic Glass Ornament

For basic instructions on faux Dichroic Glass see this post. Started with a piece of chip board that already had fantasy film adhered on both the dark and light sides. Punched a hole near the top. On the light side, stamped a message with dark blue StazOn ink and snowflakes with silver Encore! ink and heat set.
Used a bamboo skewer in the hole to prevent the embossing enamel from closing it. Stamped fantasy film with VersaMark ink and then covered in three layers of Opals Franklin Embossing Enamel, melting each layer with a heat tool. Used a small amount of blue Macquarie embossing enamels in that third layer.
While the embossing enamel was still hot, pressed in an image of an angel that had been inked up with VersaMark ink. Removed stamp when the embossing enamel had cooled. Colored the raised areas of embossing enamel with silver Encore! ink to give the piece some contrast. Colored the edges of the piece with silver metal leafing pen.
Added beads and a jump ring.
