stampbord pendants

These are two pendants that i made a while ago. The one on the left has an image from flora & fauna, that on the right from wild meadow. they were both coloured with pigment inks before stamping with black versafine.

The backs were covered with embossing powders in chinese red and denim, blue. The same poppy image was deep embossed in gold for the red one, and a butterfly embossed in silver for the blue one.

I don't like to leave the backs brown, as I don't think it looks good when the pendant twists when it is worn

This was stamped in versafine onto a piece of stampbord coloured first with distress inks in weathered wood and denim, then with versafine onyx black. The stamp from filigree fusion was then scratched out, then the image was clear embossed to stop me trying to 'improve' it! The bord was mounted onto matt silver and then black mirri card, then onto a black gatefold card with panels from the filigree fusion cd printed in

stampbord challenge

this is my entry for Glenda's latest challenge - love stampbord, so will have another go if time allows, especially as I adore the prizes!

I found the instructions for the fold on a blog somewhere - if it was yours, thanks a lot, and sorry i can't remember where I got it from! The original instructions were for A4 paper, and I changed them to give a bigger card - thought all the work folding was a little wasted on a card measuring 4" sq.

The stamps are rose script from Elusive Images, and the backing paper is from the Peacock Summer Party cd.The image on the left has been watercoloured using markers, and is matted onto a pale gold card

Thanks to a lovely lady called Margo and Freecycle I now have a digi camera, so the next pix were from my new toy - scanner can't cope with these. Have just spotted that the background paper seems to be coming adrift in this shot - will glue it down properly, I promise. Have had great fun with this fold, tho it wasn't easy cutting down an A3 sheet with scissors- roll on the new term when I can borrow a big trimmer!

Apologies to everyone who left comments for the long delay, haven't had time to look recently, thanks a million everyone!
