Keepsake

Wonderful Things Keepsake

 

Hi there,

Karen here, sharing a little Keepsake that I created with the Fairy Magic stamp set and oxide inks. I absolutely love this stamp set. It’s perfect for all types of projects of all sizes. This keepsake measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. It’s a great gift giving idea and always perfect for art décor in your crafty space too. The base of this project is a shadow box that I found clearanced at a local craft store.

 

I began this keepsake with inking some watercolor paper with various oxide inks and water. I used oxide colors: broken china, fossilized amber and spiced marmalade. I trimmed my watercolor paper down to a layering size.

Using black ink, I stamped fairies and sentiments onto the inked watercolor paper and then heat set the ink. I stamped multiple fairies and sentiments to be used in other projects. A fairy and sentiment were then cut out with scissors.

 

Next, I distressed the edges of the watercolor paper, fairy and sentiment with coordinating oxide ink.

 

Next, I applied oxide inks to resin embellishments using a paint brush.

Then, I adhered some jeweled adhesive paper to the shadow box as the base layer of the keepsake.

Next, I adhered the inked layer and resin embellishments to the keepsake.

I then added the “Wonderful Things” sentiment and fairy to the keepsake using 3D tape.

Lastly, I adhered coordinating flowers, clear beaded spray stems and a crystal charm.

 

This was a super easy and fun project that came together very quickly. The use of the fairy and sentiment added just the right touch to make this gift special. The stamp set can be found using the link below:
