Technique Junkies NEW RELEASE Watercolor Jewelry from Stamps!!
Well, this one was DEFINITELY a first for me.
The idea to do this actually came from a box of junk jewelry.
In it, there was a handmade pin. It was a piece of purple velvet that someone had stamped with a pansy, glued it to a fragment of broken acrylic and surrounded with Dresden scrap. Then they glued a pin to the back.
I'd already stamped Technique Junkies New Release stamp Old Fashioned Roses and embossed with gold powder and begun to watercolor.
After coloring the large rose, I caught sight of that piece and that was all she wrote.
You can see where I pulled the old velvet piece on and put a thick coat of glue over the same piece of acrylic and placed my rose on top (after fitting it to the piece and trimming the rose until I got the same fit). I used clothes pins to hold all edges down until it dried. Then, I glued new Dresden scrap around the edge. I let everything dry overnight. The next day, I coated the top with Glossy Accents and it was done.
Personally, I thought it came out much better than I originally thought. And God knows how rarely THAT happens!
