Wednesday Stamper - Charms


This week the theme over at WS is charms. I made this key/bag chain. It took all of yesterday to dry as I covered it with dimension glaze. (Anitas works best for me & is the right price) I stamped two of my favourite Craft Individuals girl images & glued them back to back. Coloured them in with distress inks & then coated them in glaze after adding the jump ring & keyring. I added a tiny bit of fake solder to all the edges to give it a finished look but kept it light.
