I have to admit, I got sucked right into the whole Inchie craze! Thanks to the wonderfully talented Debbie Olsen and Ellen Hutson. Debbie has been doing some soldering with tiny images, microscope slides, and the soldering tools. I used to make jewelry a lot.....but as you know there are only so many hours in the day! So jewelry making has taken a back seat to cards and scrappin! But when I saw this.....well it was right up my alley! Jewelry AND stamping.....TOGETHER?!! So I purchased the entire soldering kit from Ellen Hutson's store. My mind is crazy with ideas for this! But I had to start somewhere...... and here it is! My first soldered piece is a bookmark. I am hoping to make some cute necklaces for Cort and her friends. But let me just tell ya....it is WAY harder than it looks! The first piece I tried to make ended up in the garbage! It is a bit tricky, and I know I need to practice..... A LOT! The paper was Creative Imaginations and Memory Box. The cute little Lollipop is a sneak peek at Treehouse stamps new release coming out soon! I colored it in with my Copics and added a bit of glitter with my Sakura gelly roll pen. The word, sweet was stamped using my snap stamps.
I know there are some imperfections, and I need to practice.....but I think I have found a new love!
Have a great day Everyone!!!!! : )
