Using the Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments Shapeabilities, cut one (1) #5 Die from the Vertigo™ Run this through the Grand Calibur Cutting Machine once, then turned it 90 degrees to make sure it had cut right though.

NOTE:  Vertigo™ is available in 6 patterns- Taffeta, Tilted, Rattlesnake, Prism, Pebbles and breeze.  For my project I have used the Taffeta and comes in either 12x12 or 6x6 sheets.


  

The cut and embossed Vertigo™ has then been embossed using the Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities Folder.




The raised edges were sponged using the IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® StazOn® Solvent Ink in Sunflower Yellow and an IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Sponge Dauber - be careful not to cover all of the ornament.  Once the ink was dry IMAGINE Crafts® GlazOn™ Layer Protectant was applied using a IMAGINE Crafts® InkBlusher™.  A thin coat dries very quickly and enables layering of the StazOn Ink without the ink bleeding or smearing.

NOTEVertigo™ works best with StazOn or pigment inks.
 




IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® StazOn® Solvent Inks in Blazing Red is applied to the 'star' areas using a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Fantastix™ Multi-Purpose Applicators.  Once again the IMAGINE Crafts® GlazOn™ Layer Protectant was applied using a IMAGINE Crafts® InkBlusher™




Turn the ornament over and apply the IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® StazOn® Solvent Inks in Cactus Green to the swirls using a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Fantastix™ Multi-Purpose Applicators.




Using the 2011 Heirloom Ornaments Die and the Precious Metals Premium Craft Foils Assortment cut the top of the ornament and glue in place - leave to dry.





Finish off by adding a Seam Binding bow to the top of the ornament.  Punch a small hole in the top portion and add a chain for hanging.  I have used a recycled chain.
