I thought hard on making an ornament that was unique and something that you would notice on a Christmas tree. I created a lit/night light ornament for a tree that you can see both in the day light and lit at night.
I used Flourishes "Vintage Postcard" stamp set, stamped in Memento Black Tuxedo ink and colored in with Copics on vellum paper. I cut the picture down to size and placed it into a frame. I hot glued some Teal Velvet Ribbon to the frame so I could hang it, then I added a tea light flameless candle to illuminate the picture in the frame.
Here you can see the tea light that I hot glued to the back side of my illuminated and framed ornament.
Just a tip or two, if you are going to try to color in on Vellum, don't try to shade with them or the colors will smear all over and create a mess on your image. And if you do try to layer your colors, let each layer dry before adding more color and don't recolor over a color you just laid down, or it will "separate". So for instance, I layered the B05 Copic twice on each side of the vellum paper, to achieve the deep evening sky color. So I would recommend coloring on both sides of the vellum to get some really saturated colors.
I used the following Copic Sketch Collections to color my ornament in:
