I am in full fledged “getting ready for the craft fair” mode, hence my lack of blogging. BUT I wanted to pop in to share some armband jewelry and earrings…..but first I have to share a couple of awards I won for this card:
I really need to create one location for all the challenge badges on the blog…. one of these days I’ll get around to that I hope.
Now on to the armband jewelry I was talking about earlier……..
LOL, no I don’t wear armband jewelry other than maybe bracelets. However, ©Teresa Sherman’s Steampunk Fairy just screamed at me to add some metal. The armband was made out of a Tim Holtz jump ring by ‘unbending’ them and re-coiling . The same goes for the earring, except that I added a Tim Holtz mini fastener. The metal disks are regular silver hardware store washers colored with a gold Sharpie Poster Paint pen.
Steampunk Fairy is available from Sweet Pea Stamps as a single stamp or as part of Plate #168. The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Stamps Plate #98 which I just cut apart and edged with Distress Ink.
Super fun to color. Teresa really made it easy to know where to color ‘shadows’…..and I definitely like how she turned out. Teresa or ‘Teri’ is an awesome crafter besides a great artist. I’ve known Teri now for (gasp) three or four years. Wow times does fly…. anyway….. here’s another look at my Metal Steampunk Fairy.
Couple of challenges I’m entering this card in:
- Delicious Doodles Challenges #3: Tales of the Unexpected
- Crafty Cardmakers #53: Anything Goes
- Paper Sundaes #89: Lots of Layers
- Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes —- stop by and wish them a Happy Birthday!
I’m sure there are more challenges out there but I am extremely tired…. so I think I’ll call it a night.
Thanks for stopping by….until next time!
