Good morning everyone, I thought as I made so many creations this time I would make a separate post to share with you how I made them :-) First of all I want to start with my favourite project of them all-my Indigo Blu Butterfly shrink plastic gemstone necklace. I started by stamping the butterfly image by Indigo Blu on clear shrink plastic with Stazon ink. I then punched holes in each butterfly so I could make a focal point for the centre of my necklace. I shrunk them, then attached jump rings to each hole and then between each other for good clearance between each butterfly. When I was happy with the look I added jump rings to the top of the design and started creating my gemstone necklace to go with it. I used Ametrine coins, Amethyst beads, Black Rutilated Quartz, Shell and clear ab bicones. I attached a magnetic clasp so I can do it up myself :-)
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Next is a butterfly mobile charm from the same sort of idea-just to show you the versatility of using shrink plastic with your favourite stamps! :-) I used a mobile charm toggle which I decorated with coloured bicones, a pearl and the shrink plastic charm made in the same way as the necklace ones. They make great little presents :-)
Crafty Sentiment tag. As its Valentines soon and I send little gifts to my friends I thought it would be a good idea to make some packaging to send with my little gifts :-) I used Promarkers to colour the image from Crafty Sentiments, then cut round it with a small border. I then used Sarah Hurley paper to cover my plain cardstock tag, then I decorated with gems.
Crafty Sentiment bag-in a similar vein to the make above I made a bag to go with my tag. I coloured the Crafty Sentiment image with promarkers and cut a small border around the image. I covered a kraft gift bag with Sarah Hurley papers, then decorated with gems and added a ribbon by Crafty Ribbons to finish!
I would like to enter the bag and tag into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments! :-)
