Hello Everyone and happy 2nd of June. I have a few things to share with you today. Firstly is my first attempt at Polymer Clay. If any of you create with this stuff on a regular basis, I would love to know your tips and tricks. For this pendant, I wanted to create something for my Sister using Bombshell Stamps. She loves big and chucky jewelry, and although this piece is not as finished as I'd like it to be, it is my first attempt, so I'm trying not to be too hard on myself.
The polymer clay was stamped with the Bombshell Spider Web stamp from the Tattoo Background Set and I really like the look. Then I made the little flower and the swirls. After the piece was put together, I dusted the entire thing with Perfect Pearls and gently misted with water to set. Then I added a few Heidi Swapp chandelier crystals and a green crystal bead in the center of the flower. Finished it off with a few pieces of Vintaj Brass and TADA!!!
This is the final result and my sister really liked it.
I used the Helmar Gemsstone glue on the center of the flower and it worked like magic!!!
Not to bad for a first attempt eh? <------the Canadian in me appeared there lol
Now onto the second little tidbit for today. A little bit ago, I was asked by Joni at Raise the Bar Challenge blog if I wanted to come on board as one of their full time designers, and I'm thrilled to say that I accepted. How fun is that!!!
Last but not least, Really Reasonable Ribbon has started challenges at their blog too. Our first challenge is to create a masculine themed card, and I would love for you to hop on over and join in the fun. You could win a gift certificate to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. Who doesn't love ribbon right?
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you are enjoying the weather and the flowers that Spring time offers. Until next time
