Butterfly Pendant.

I enjoyed making the Cameo Necklace for this fortnights challenge of "Stamped Jewellery"at 
Fun with Shapes & More so I decided to play along again with a Necklace and Matching Gift Box to match the "Butterflies" card I made yesterday.

 I've use Spellbinder's Large Circles and Large Scalloped Circles and cut the base of the pendant from Core'dinations CS and some cardboard from a cereal packet to strengthen it a little. I stamped over the patterned paper with BasicGrey "Two Scoops" flourish stamp and then coated with Crackle accents for a vintage aged effect. Once dry I punched a hole through all layers and set an eyelet to secure the velvet ribbon. I then decorated with Rose's from Wild Orchid Crafts. I then punched out two butterflies and then stuck them together and covered with crackle accents before mounting onto base and finishing off with gems for the butterflies body.

 The base of the box is painted with "Black Soot" Distress Ink then covered with Crackle Accents, then decorated to match the necklace.
