Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Some Inspiration Studio 490!
This is a very special weekend for my husband and me as we are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. How the time has flown by! My husband wanted to buy me a pearl gift and I decided I would like a pearl ring since I still wear the ear rings that he bought me when we were 19 year old students. (I am pretty cheap to maintain. Apart from my craft supplies..... )
I started with the large ring from Art Parts sample pack. I cut out a piece of card, the size of the ring and stamped it with Studio 490 Sentimental Art with the lace stamp and Dabber acrylic paint Pearl. I dried the paint and then I went over it with several distress inks, Fired Brick, Barn Door and Festive Berries with my distress tool. The rim of the ring I also painted with Dabber in pearl and then attached the background card to the ring.
I used two Art Part leaves which I distressed with distress ink Pine Needles. The flower came from Art Parts Florals and I covered it with paper from Tim Holtz's Lost and Found, I put a pearl button from the Tim Holtz's Idea-ology Accoutrements Fanciful in the centre of the flower. Using my hot glue gun I glued the two leaves and the flower to the rim. Around the rim, I embelished it with stick on pearls.
I completed the project with a photograph of my pearl ring and a sentiment from Sentimental Art "I will love you forever and a day". We are so chuffed to have been married for thirty years.
