Bramford Girls Challenge x2

A couple of us missed the July Bramford Crop so we were given 2 items to alter for the August Crop.

The first item is a jigsaw piece.  For this I used my Ranger Melt Pot for the first time (although I've had it for ages!).  I hoped to achieve a mixed background by adding Silver, Bronze, Black, White and Gold embossing powders to the pot.  Well as you can see it didn't go to plan so I will need to work on this technique for next time!  The fairy stamp is inked and placed into the hot melted embossing powder and left to cool.  Next I went round the edges with a gold dauber and painted the back of the jigsaw with black paint.  To finish the piece, I used some wire, punched 3 small butterflies and added Stickles for the butterfly bodies and the fairy wings.  I added the word 'fly' using letter stickers covered in Glossy Accents.  Finally I added a Tim Holtz Swivel Clasp so that it can hang it in my craft room or on my craft bag.

Thanks for looking, I'll be back with the second item soon!
