This week has been a bit hectic what with tax returns and trips to the fracture clinic (Moonshine Minor has broken his wrist (he did it in PE so no it's not a snow related injury!) so my project is very simple. I chose to go with a monochrome colour scheme making use of second impression stamping on the background images to add depth. In hindsight I wish I had sprayed some Glimmer Mist through a harlequin mask to give the background a bit of interest and texture - but hey-ho I didn't - lesson learned for next time!
Some close ups...
Eiffel Tower and Ledger - Habico - Vintage Travel
Flourish - Artemio
Birds - cArt-Us - Birds on branch
Journaling spot - Kelly Panacci for Sandylion - Decorative Details
Text - Royal & Langnickel - Viva France
Versafine - Onxy black
StazOn - Jet black
Frosted shrink plastic
7Gypsies mini keys, black
The charm was made by stamping the Kelly Panacci journaling spot and part of one of the Birds on Branch stamps on frosted shrink plastic, punching out with a 1 inch circle punch, punching a hole at the top with a single hole punch and then shrinking with a heat gun. I then threaded on a black jump ring followed by a second jump ring with a 7Gypsies mini key, then a final jump ring before threading the piece on to the cord.
I really like the effect of the sharp black stamping over the lighter second impression stamping of the background images but REALLY wish I had done some Glimmer Mist or clear embossing harlequin background - anyway I hope you like it and thanks for taking the time to stop by.
