Stacey's Jewelery Inspiration #33

DSCF3879

I have been wanting to do Stacey's Jewelry Inspiration challenge for a long time, but the week always got away from me---and almost did this week, too!   Isn't this pretty?

Here's what Stacey says: "The talented and creative, 3Fun, made this multi strand necklace called Tears of the Phoenix. The multi strand necklace was made of pure soft 100% Merino wool using the wet and needle felting techniques. Go check out 3Fun's etsy shop...she has some fabulous felt jewelry creations!"  So here is my (lame) creation:

I almost didn't post it; as much as I like the color Blush Blossom, whenever I go to actually use it, it just doesn't click for me.  The sentiment from Flight of the Butterfly is stamped in Real Red ink, but it photographed pink....I was just too lazy to re-photo it in better light!  I used various retired DPs for the flowers, cutting them with the Birds & Blooms diecuts; there is MS citron glitter on the centers and a little bling on the Real Red butterfly, which is two hearts from the 3-heart punch.  Yellow twill from Taylored Expressions finishes it off.   I think the beautiful summer-like weather we had today just has floated my stampin' desire right out the window!  Tomorrow we are going to get the boat "ship-shape", so no posting for me!  Have a lovely weekend!

  2. all the little details of your card are amazing...the 2-heart butterfly, piercing, and big shot blooms are a perfect combo for the inspiration:) thanks for playing in the JCI33, Leanne:)

  8. Lame, my butt! This is GREAT! When I first saw it, I loved it. The colors just pop and the pierced stems are a special touch. My mailbox would be doing the happy dance! I love to work with bright cheery colors anyway, especially at this time of the year. Boating, huh? Enjoy!

  10. What a terrific garden scene you created! You did a great job with the color combo. I also have a very hard time using blush blossom which is why I rarely do.
