Beedazzle

Hello Friends,

Today I'm here to share a handmade necklace, which I made few months back.

Once I finalised the design , I started by making the embroidery on the cotton cloth. I then drew the bee on the cloth and did a simple stitch and chain stitch using a few beads for the wings and eyes.

When I was done with the embroidery part , I took the mini embroidery hoop and placed it on the stitched piece.This mini hoop has a center plate. I placed the design on the center plate and then placed the miniature hoop on top. I pushed it down to secure the cloth and  added the back plate using craft glue and hot glue gun.

When I was done with the pendent , I started making a matching crochet necklace to go with the bee embroidery. For that I picked a slightly golden honey color synthetic thread and beads in shade of bee color ( shades of yellow and black) . I used chain crochet stitch and beads . I wanted to have 8 strands together on both sides. For that I did an approximate 4 meter crochet chain.

The last  part was getting all the pieces together, and for that I used a thin gold wire, tiger tail wire and seed beads . Lastly I added a clasp and was done!!








Hope you like my work.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Cheers

Happy Mother´s day!!

Hello Friends, 

Mother´s Day is this weekend and I found the challenge at CASology where they have
given the perfect cue word to come up with  Mother´s day card.

Week 342 - Mother.jpg

Here is my card


I have created the background using heart stencil from Tim Holz collection and embossing paste from
Wendy Vecchi. I tried a small bouquet of flowers using few flower die cuts. I have used Fresh peach from Hero Arts shadow ink and Mustard seed distress ink from Tim Holz to color the flowers.
For leaves, I have used crushed olive distress ink.

Sentiments are from CASual Fridays Stamps.

Birthday Card!!

Hello Friends,

Today I'm here to share a card, which I made for Simon Says Wednesday Birthday challenge.
Because of my jewellery making. ...card making has taken a back seat....But its so relaxing to take out favourite stamps and to get inky.
I have used here "Bamboo Rose stamp set" from Altenew stamp company and sentiments are
from CAS-ual Fridays stamps. I have heat embossed the flowers and coloured them using distress inks. Added some stitching, sequins , glitter and doily .







This card I'm also entering in following challenges.
