Glass Block Christmas

I purchased this glass block several years ago, and could not come up with how I wanted to go about decorating it, after several false starts. I finely came up with a plan.

First I stamped my image ( DRS designs Snowman and Santa) on tissue paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink then I colored the image with Copic markers. After the ink had time to dry completely. I used a light coat of Mod Podge to attach the image to the glass block. Let that dry completely. Cut a piece of double sided tape large enough to completely cove the image. Attach to block. Using tiny clear beads completely cover the tape. Then I used micro fine iridescent glitter and completely cover the image. Then I used ¼ inch Red Line Tape and made a border around the image. Cover the tape with tiny gold beads and gold glitter.
Attach the ribbon and bow around the sides. I made the poinsettia flowers using Spellbinders die.

Thanks for looking.

Have a Great Day,
