Let me explain......in my silversmithing class we have had some recent fun casting objects using the Delft clay method. I have cast all sorts of things in the past and this time I had an urge to recreate a Polo mint as I had an idea for a cool simple necklace.
Let me show you how I did it.
Below is what you see (if the process works) when you cool everything down and open out the mould. See how on the left the silver slightly burns the clay.
So here is my finished necklace
My card challenge project today does have a slightly tenuous slightly link to my necklace, you know me I do like a plan...
so ...............what is a present wrapped in....yes gift wrap!
I made this gift wrap for a new baby gift for a friend's new granddaughter.
I love making my own gift wrap, when I have the time, and I always use brown paper and stamps to do this. It's such a cheap way of doing it and it is so personal to the recipient.
I used one of my large LOTV sentiment stamps and 2 colours of ink
I would like to enter my tag (and gift wrap if it's allowed) into the following fun challenges;
Stamping sensations stamps.dies and punches
As you like it favourite book at the moment one of my favourite books is the one I read to my darling granddaughter Daisy.She adores the book Peepbo written by the Allberg's. It has the sweetest illustrations in it and is all about a Baby....1,2,3! My tag is inspired by this sweet board book.
Simon says stamp Wednesdays favourite technique or product I adore stamping and embossing...I still marvel at how the image comes to life as the embossing powder melts...magic!
Moving along with the the time inspired by a song there is only one song for this.....Diana Ross and the Supremes singing Baby Love.
Cute card Thursdays add a quote I love this LOTV quote.
Craft my life anything goes but no cards
That craft place anything goes
A sprinkle of imagination anything goes My product sold in their shop is Ranger Jet black archival ink (under the embossing)
