Crafty Individuals July Entry

A little while ago the lovely Crafty Individuals (Jean and Malcolm) chose THIS as one of five winning entries...and I got to choose my stamp, and they were kind enough to include 2 of THESE little beauties for me to play I thought they were perfect for this month's theme of "pink, cream, and brown"
I started by measuring the inside of the pendants and I cut out a few stamped images to fit, as you can see I couldn't stop at just one...    I was trying to work out a way that I could change the pendants to suit my mood (and trust me, you don't want to know just how many moods I have!!)  when it clicked, I could swap the images around by using some type of magnet, so I had a look through my stash and found some magnet-backed business card blanks, trimmed them to size (one for the inside of the pendant and one for each image, making sure that they "attracted"each other, polarity-wise)     My official entry is, of course, this one, in pink, cream, and brown:

I stamped Old Fashioned Girl onto some pink cs, and clear-embossed the image, adding brown ink to the edges, and a few pearls...

But I also made these ones:  The first image is CI-068 (which may be retired, as I can't find it in the site), stamped onto Distress inks b'ground and with a coat of DM and a sprinkling of tiny rhinestones.
THIS image was stamped onto a prepared domino, overstamped with THIS girl, and given a coat of DM and a tiny flower-shaped rhinestone.

 There's the DANCING couple again, coloured with some Twinks H2Os, and given a coat of DM...and next to that pendant is another image (CI-120 Out of the Shadows) which I've had for a long time, but can't find it in the Crafty Individuals shop, I just stamped the man, cut around him and stuck him to some printed text coloured with Distress ink (Vintage photo).

I had so much fun making these, maybe I'll make a few more ; )
Thanks for visiting me, and don't forget, there's still plenty of time to enter this great challenge, for all the details go HERE.
