My first attempt at these. How easy!! Just reinkers & glitter and look at the result. I just bought a bunch of beautiful glitter at a stamp convention but wasn't sure what I was going to use it for...just wanted it. Now I know and am thankful that I bought so many beautiful colors.

I tried this technique after seeing all the beautiful ornaments done up and why won't my reinker colors dry?????? I have left them alone overnight, tried heat setting them and still no luck with them drying...any advice would be appreciated. TFP

I just made this this morning, so I'm not sure if it is dry or not...and how would I know. It's inside. I did drain my extra ink out but into my ink pad so I wouldn't waste it. How do you know it's not dry???

After you coat the inside of your ball with reinker let it sit inverted in a small paper cup for a few minutes to allow some of the excess to drip out. Then, immediately coat the inside with glitter. This is the ONLY way your ink will stay put. It may not dry for several days. You will continue to get a pool of ink in the bottom of the ball if you don't put either glitter, pearlex or embossing powder in the bottom. That is what helps it bind.
Smile! It makes people wonder what you've been up to. :)
