Hello everyone! Happy Saturday!
I actually made this in the wee hours of the morning when I saw the Inspiration Challenge on SCS last night. I chose this necklace for my inspiration but let me tell you ... I could have chosen any of them! This is a gorgeous Etsy shop (TZaddiShop)! Check it out!
I wanted to recreate the gloss of her glass necklace so I decided to try the faux stone technique for my bg, using T Holtz Alcohol Inks and copper mixative. Then I wanted the faux embossed look so I stamped my images from the Oct. release by Our Daily Bread designs, With Heartfelt Sympathy first with Archival Sepia, and then overstamped just a little off with Archival Jet Black. Unfortunately the photo just looks out of focus but in real life, the sepia just colors in the lined images a bit for more definition. I have tried numerous photos and I just can't get one to show that... perhaps because in order not to have glare I also don't have the proper light to show it??? I'm not sure but I might try again later.
My base is Basic Black and the matting is Core-dinations. I did the faux stone technique on glossy cs and used scraps of copper to die cut my frame topper with a Spellbinders frame die and the little corners are a Sizzix die cut and embossed with a CB EF.
Quick and simple once the bg paper was made. Hope you like it! Thanks so much for looking!
Have a blessed weekend!!!
