As Mothering Sunday is fast approaching, I thought I'd share some bright & bold statement jewellery that would make a nice gift for Mum. Of course, you could always make some for yourself instead!
Here's how I made the set...
I took 3 Stampbord pieces, 2 one inch square, & 1 two inch square. This is a fantastic surface to work on, & takes inks beautifully.
I applied alcohol ink (sunset orange, watermelon, & raspberry), using felt on an applicator tool, layering until I had the look I wanted.
I then sanded back the colour in the middles a little, to lighten.
Then I used a scratching tool to scratch some white highlights. This adds a lovely depth to the pieces.
I used the black archival ink pad to ink all of the sides & edges, to add a frame to my artwork.
Next, I embossed my pieces with clear ultra thick embossing enamel. I used 3 layers of embossing.
In the picture below, I have just embossed the large piece. You can see the difference the embossing makes, it really brings out the colours, and adds a beautiful shine, of course.
To finish, I added jump rings, metallic beads & ear wires for the earrings, & a ball chain for the pendant.
I hope you like this bright little set,
thanks for visiting,
