Something Old and Something New

Simon Says Stamp and Show something old and something new.  I pulled out my melt pot to play again and create a pendant with a mix of elements.  

 A different angle:
I created a Valentine's pendant using some old (Vintage cupid with heart)  and new(ribbon, earring)  bits and pieces. 

Recipe:
  1. Stamp script over background using brown ink. 
  2. Stamp damask using red ink in corner. 
  3. Stamp Sentiment using brown ink. 
  4. Heat melt pot with UTEE. 
  5. Stamp Eiffel Tower on Shrinky Dink using StazOn ink. 
  6. Place Shrinky Dink in UTEE. Shrink up and pull out of UTEE
  7. Cut background to fit into metal frame. 
  8. Place Eiffel Tower and any other bits and pieces into metal frame over background. 
  9. Pour melted UTEE into frame. 
  10. Let dry.  
  11. Accessorize.
Stamps: Memory Box - Eiffel Tower, Love, Elemental Damask
Inks: StazOn Jet Black, Ranger Archival Inks - Coffee, Memento - Rhubarb Stalk

That's it for today. Been working on projects that I can't share. :)  Have a wonderful Thursday!
