Sunday Challenge...Christmas

This week over on Dotties World
Its Juliets turn to set the sunday challenge and its Christmas,use a Charmed download and make it Christmas, it ofcourse doesnt have to be a Christmas image, as I have used,sleeping kitty from the Cat collection

I printed on to a sheet of water slide decal transfer,after adding the colour to kitty on paint,as this was a transclucent download. When the images has been printed I cut it out and spray with Crystal Acrylic spray vanish, this make the transfer image water proof,then you can treat it like a decal,by soaking backing off in water for 30 seconds and placing on the glass,then carefully squeegy the water out to make te decal adhere to the glass.
This is now washable after 24hrs left to dry,but not dishwasher or microwave proof,also you mustnt soak the glass or the transfer will eventually dissolve.
I am going to make a set for Christmas,as they can be used for wine or a dessert,they make ideal gifts and the images could be changed to an anniversary or special birthday or engagement etc.
