For today's Inspiration Challenge---Artful Whimsy.
I finished my DD's Graduation Announcements!! Whoohooo! So I had time to play today.
I decided to just be inspired by the entire Artful Whimsy website, instead of one particular piece, and make some necklaces. I have always wanted to try these, so thanks for the inspiration as well as the motivation :)
The original, basic design elemants are from patterned paper, but then I stamped and embellished at will.
For the highwire ballerina, I stamped a music BG (stamping off twice) at the top and then the words. I sponged the edges and I added glitter to the tutu and bling to the glass.
For the Eiffel Tower, I sponged the edges in black and stamped French Script (of course!) at the bottom (stamping off once) and the script 'Love You' in pink in between the lines. Then I stamped the bird on the wire and the script 'I.' I stamped the 'you' by first stamping the solid one then overstamping with the word (because I didn't like the white word, I wanted it black) and then cut it out and sponged the edges. The crown bling is outside on the glass.
Thanks for looking :)
