Metallic Challenge for Color Week
Yes, I am obsessed with Moxie Fab World! I love their challenges, the artists who enter their challenges and their challenge projects! The color challenges they have up for the Color Inspiration Week looked fun and so I thought I might give it a try. So, here is my entry for the Metallic Challenge.
I love the over the top trend in custom jewelry right now, and clipped this necklace out of my Chicago Tribune this past year.
The description says it is a Miriam Haskell necklace for $2000.00! I knew I wanted to try and make the flower in the lower right hand corner with paper! Here's my paper version with simple circles punched then run through my Cuttlebug, using Swiss Dot folder. I then used a vintage button from my stash and some Queen and Co. pearls.
The label shape is from the Mother's Day Cricut Cartridge, and the Stamp is Close to My Heart: Soul Mates. The ink is Tsukineko. I used a wire ribbon and pleated the ends, I added a stick pin by Jennie Bowlin Studios. Don't you just love these?! The glittered vellum is K & Company, Somerset Swirls. All the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
