Paper Weights -- High Hopes Stamps

Hi there, It's another Happy Friday and I'm back to share a few handmade presents I made for Christmas.
My creation today is made with ...

 To create these paperweights I used these glass blobs (I think they are actually called "Glass Blanks" They are nice and heavy and I think will make a good paper weight .
 The Images were coloured with Copics, added snow using acrylic paint and a Sharpie marker. The image was stamped in distress ink and if I make these again I would use Memento Ink as it did smear slightly.  
Matt medium was brushed on the the tops of the image and adhered to the bottom of the glass base. For the Christmas Cow I Stamped the sentiment in two parts on either side of the design. Oh, and I added some candy cane twine and a  Cow bell too! 
 Here's a close up!
 Here's the next Paperweight....
This time I used some super soft cotton twine and an added snowflake.
 And a close up !
