I got those baubles - surprise surprise - at A*tion again. You can open them and insert photos for example, but I decided to insert stamp images instead.
First I die cut the circles, stamped on the images and used the 'wrinkle free distress technique' with distress stain broken china and lots of water. Because the paper was rather rippled it was ironed afterwards.

Some details of the images have been coloured very lightly with watercolour pens and finally heat embossed around the edges. I adhered the circles together back to back and fixed them into the bauble halves with glossy accents.
That's it :-) Quite like the results.

sorry for the reflections on the pics ...

Thanks so very much for visiting and having a peek.
Please think about joining our challenge over on the de stempelwinkel stampers challenge blog - it's winter/Christmas. Thanks so much. We're all excited about what you'll come up with.

Hugs, Suzanne xx

I like the first one best, but for people who are not into Christmas the others are good "alternative" baubles.
