Cameo Necklace.

The challenge at Fun with Shapes this fortnight is to create a piece of 
jewelery using Stamps & Spellbinders Die-cuts.

I've used Large Scalloped and large ovals to create a three layered Cameo base with  cardboard from inside a boarded envelope and core'dinations white and black card. I stamped the Cameo image onto the smallest oval of the three then allowed the ink to dry before coating with pva and sprinkled with Frantage silver glass glitter. I then coated the whole of the front with Anita's 3D Gloss embossing liquid and sprinkled a little more glass glitter on top. after alowing this to dry completely I then repeated this for the back. When both sides were comepletely dry I punched a whole for the velvet ribbon with my Crop-a-dile and added a few Wild Orchid Crafts Rose's adhering with the embossing liquid. 

Today's other challenges my necklace cover are:

Rainbow Lady ~ Vintage.
Totally Gorjuss ~ Bling.
& Simon Say's Stamp & Show ~ Anything Goes.
Really Reasonable Ribbons ~ Black & White plus 1 other.
City Crafter ~ Hint of Pink.
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Recycle, Re-use & Re-new.

Also Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent,  who also have a bonus question which is.........
What’s the strangest thing you have been hoarding for the
purpose of using it in your art and how do you plan to use it?

My Answer is:
Bubble wrap to use for a painting technique.


Die's ~ Spellbinder's.
Rose's ~ Wild Orchid Crafts.
Stamps ~ Scrapagogo.
Glitter ~ Stampendous Frantage.
CS ~ Coredinations and inside a boarded envelope.
Momento Ink.
Velvet Ribbon ~ Dovecraft.
Embossing Liquid ~ Anita's
