Little Bit of Gossip

Hi Everyone,

I love this image so much, I think I have probably coloured it in most colour combos now. I decided to make it into a little easel card this time.

I used LOTV papers layered onto teal blue card although the light makes it look black :( The image is coloured with Promarkers and the wings have lots of WoS of course ! Then all I added was a Memory Box butterfly and a doily, the little flowers were done with a Woodware punch. The little teal and aqua pearls I bought from someone on a FB group.

I thought I would also show you one of first attempts at enamelling which I started recently

This was fired onto a copper blank using translucent powder and millefiori 'slices' I'm pleased with it but know I have to do some practising as at the moment I cant seem to figure out how to stop it shrinking slightly from the edges and looking a little distressed. I have found some colours do this a lot more than others so its a case of trial and error really.....

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend with lots of crafting !

Hi Karen, Your easel card is a beauty. She certainly is a very pretty little image. I can see why she'd be a favourite.

The enamelled pendant looks beautiful I'm sure you'll sort out your problem. The shrinkage certainly doesn't show in the photo. Have lots of fun. Barbxx
