Stampendous & EnviroTex Blog Hop - Bird in a Frame


The Stampendous DT is playing with EnviroTex Craft Resin this week. Carmi over at the Resin Crafts Blog is also playing along with us and her projects are fantastic. 

I tried a few different projects just learning how to use the resin.  I decided to start small and create a pendant for my first project:

 I stamped the background using the sweet Charm Collection Clear Set  and added touch of blue dye inks on the background and the bird.  I added the bronze glass glitter into the bezel and added the resin.I was really pleased with this and will use it on a project in the future.

My next project I decided to try to create a paper weight using a jar top I had in my stash:
 I thought it would be fun to create some acetate stamped images to float in the resin:

 I used the Stampendous Butterfliesand stamped them using StazOn black ink on acetate.  They were cut out using detail scissors.  I covered all the metal surfaces using Versamark and Shabby White Embossing Enamel. I poured the resin and added a layer of gold glitter and my butterflies.  I added a few different metallic charms to the resin.  Then I thought I would add a touch of color and I added drops of purple glimmer mist. I then swirled around the glimmer mist and it made little purple bubbles and I loved the effect.

On Saturday I will share my next two projects with a few more lessons learned. :) 

Now off to see the DT projects for today:

  12. Why do I have this vision of you bending over the jar ring, mumbling under your breath like an evil witch while you carefully place each piece and drop color, etc? Such a cool idea! And that pendant is so gorgeous.
