Hello, I thought I’d drop in between loads of laundry and school summer plays to show you my recent makes.
A family member saw a sterling silver necklace I had made on my Facebook page (shameless plug for The Artisan Duck on Facebook – feel free to find me and like!) and asked for one in Rose Quartz.
As ever, the combination of silver and semi-precious beads is lovely. It was her birthday this weekend so I gave this as her gift along with a card. The card was a bit of an experiment. I drew and water-coloured a picture and then scanned it onto my laptop so I could print it out.
Here is the original watercolour picture :
Here is the finished result :
I added a little Ranger stickles, sequins and clear Wink of Stella and finished by mounting onto black card. It’s a technique that needs a little tweaking but I was so pleased with the result.
I’m off soon to dodge the raindrops again. Hope you are all having a good day.
