Dichroic flowers....

Ok, so did you have a go at my technique last week??

Well here's another project I created for Bubbly Scrumptious to try and tempt you

002

Sometimes I think its hard when you see a technique to picture how you could use it in your crafting so I do like to play and see what I can come up with :D

And yes Katy, I love getting messy LOL :D

So,I started with a letter O chippie which I covered in the faux dichroic glass and was going to make it in to a mini frame. Then I spotted my Tim Holtz tattered florals die and it went in a whole new direction LOL!!!!

I chopped the O in half to give me a crescent shape and rounded the edges I had cut with scissors.

I punched a hole with my big bite at either end and one at the bottom centre and attached my dangley :D ( a chandelier drop)

I cut out the flowers from chipboard and bent them in to shape to create some dimension. I coloured the reverse with inka gold

I did the faux dichroic glass using salmon pink, wild plum and cranberry alcohol inks and sprinkled in some gold utee.

I stuck them on to the crescent with glossy accents and added prima say it with crystal centres

I painted the back of the large chandelier drop with the croco, and inks and uteed it to seal.

Then added the jewellery findings which came from a cheap necklace from Primark :D

Here's a few more pics to give you an idea of the depth of colour :D

I hope this helps you see how it can fit in to your crafting :D
