Rosebud hanging ornament from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning blogland buddies, hope you're having a good week. As usual i'm rushing off to work this morning but then I've got 4 days off for Easter, how lovely! I do hope the weather improves a bit but at least I haven't got to go to work so I promise i won't moan too much lol. Anyway this mornings project is a little hanging ornament made with the lovely little rosebud stamp from Periwinkle Corners and Rosebud clear stamp set from Chocolate Baroque.

I drew round a microscope slide twice and  stamped the rosebud with black archival ink and coloured with Derwent inktense pencils and added stamped a little text here and there. Inktense pencils blend beautifully and once dry, the colour doesn't seem to run so they are ideal for a project like this. I took two microscope slides and stuck them to my coloured images using glossy accents and left them overnight to dry.

Once they were thoroughly dry I cut them out and used more glossy accents to stick them together. I sealed the edges with silver embossing powder and added a glue on bail to the top and little metal corner to the bottom. The silver butterfly, little pearls and beads are from my stash.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

  6. Amazing - very effective with the way the silver picks up the glint from the microscope slides & I love the way you've used a red/pink ribbon to echo the colour of your rosebud.
