Acrylic Bauble Earrings and Pendant

I decided to think outside the box with these small acrylic bauble shapes.  I turned three of them into a matching pair of earrings and pendant.

Remove the protective cover from one side of the three smallest baubles. Add Botanical and Lettuce alcohol inks on a felt pad with a little blending solution all over the back of the baubles.
Remove the protective covers from the other sides of the baubles. Stamp one of the solid holly leaves from the Merry Christmas stamp set several times on each bauble using the Pentart metal leaf glue. Add variegated gold, silver and copper metal flakes and remove the excess.
Carefully paint white acrylic paint on the other side of the baubles over the alcohol ink to protect it and allow to dry.
Glue the baubles onto stencil card leaving the loop ends hanging over the edge. Once dry, trim round with a craft knife.
To finish, add silver jewellery findings and beads to two of the baubles to turn them into earrings. Add narrow multi-coloured ribbon to the third to make it a pendant.
