Hanging By a Bit of Wire...

If you are a jewellery maker, look away now LOL, I think I may have broken some kind of law!



Here is my interpretation of this month's great theme over at Crafty Individuals challenge blog...there's still a couple of days left to join, so if you get the chance, why not give it a go?   
I stamped the bodyform from this SET onto some shrink plastic, masking it, and stamping the smaller butterfly from this SET.(I used Archival ink)     I coloured the images with wc pencils, then carefully cut around the images, punching a hole with my crop-a-dile, and then, using my trusty heat gun, shrunk the image to a cute little size (I placed the shrunk images next to their original counterparts for reference)    I added the shrunk bodyform to some broken bits of jewellery I had picked up at a garage sale, and added that to a piece of suede, stamping onto it using the images from this SET, and adding some KG as a finishing touch.     I hope it qualifies for the theme of "hanging about".       I hope you're having a great weekend, and if you follow the footy, I hope your team makes it to the finals next week (DH is watching the semis ATM)    Thanks for visiting my humble palace, now, go ang get messy : )

If there are laws to be broken, I am in big trouble! Not sure what crimes and misdemeanours are suspected here, but I think it's lovely!
