We had our church small group party Thursday night and one of my friends was wearing a cute little resin pin of a cat in a stocking. I had JUST ordered this cute little Lockhart stamp, and thought I would make a pin, too, for one of the other ladies in our group who always hosts and has several cats. So here is a little tutorial!
For this particular pin, I stamped the image in Stazon on watercolor paper, then watercolored it and cut it out. I then stamped it three times on black cardstock with white craft ink, and cut them out. I like to cut out the black ones just a tiny bit inside the lines.
Glue one black piece to the back of the original stamped image with Crystal Effects; when it is dry, glue each successive piece. A clothespin is good to hold the layers together.
Now take a black marker and color the white edges of the watercolor paper.
Your image should now be four layers thick; tap it firmly on a Versamark pad, sprinkle clear embossing powder over it and heat emboss it. Do this twice.
Isn't she sweet? Another view:
Now add a pin back--this is an easy, peel & stick one!
Make a little card to pin it on........
and package it up in a little cello bag! These don't really take that long to make!! Hope they inspire you to make your art into jewelry!
