This week our challenge was to create a card or project that is Shiny and Bright. The project can use metallic papers, crystals, or metal-toned pearl pens! I hope you'll create along with us this week!
The steps to create a personal piece of jewelry are very easy. I stamped the Snowflake Jewel (C-975) image on black cardstock with Versamark ink. I embossed with silver embossing powder. I filled in some of the open spaces and the smaller dots with Silver pearl pen - but you could easily add smaller Swarovski crystals. I glued SS12 Crystals and teardrop crystals (8 mm x 4.8 mm) into the snowflake. To seal everything, I covered the entire front (not covering the jewels) with Glass Effects Gel. I adhered a pin back onto the reverse side with Glass Effects Gel. In fact, to make this an incredibly sturdy piece, I coated the entire back side of my snowflake with Glass Effects Gel and then pressed the pin back into the wet surface. The finding slipped into the layer and is securely embedded into the shiny exterior.
Here's a picture of my daughter modeling the brooch.
I think it's the perfect scale pin to dress up a scarf or a winter coat.
I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration. And don't forget you can join in our fun!
