You're Charming

Hello girls! I hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday! My little man is feeling better as he was running all around this afternoon. So nice to see him happy and giggly again. I've got plans to pick up around here and then I do have to work for a bit tomorrow night. But today I want to share a card with you. Pink Papery Studios is releasing some new images today. Be sure to stop by and see all the new stuff. My favorite is this charm bracelet. I have a huge, HUGE charm bracelet. I always love to see other people's bracelets too and hear all about every charm and it's meaning.

Amy asked us to create a card using the bracelet, to use Shimmer It somewhere and to have a 3D effect. I hope you can see some of the 3D on this bracelet.

I kept my layout very simple so all the focus would be on the charms. I used a silver gel pen to color in the bracelet and edges of the charms. Then each one was individually cut out. This set is designed so that the link on the charm is "open" so that it can be placed right onto your bracelet.

For the heart charm, I just hand-lettered my sentiment, mimicking a typewriter font that might be seen on vintage charms. The star was encrusted with small gems. I have several charms on my bracelet that are pave and they are some of my most favorite!! A simple gem in the circle charm - perfect for a June birthstone!

This next charm was painted with Shimmer It in Rosette and then a butterfly gem laid over it. Enameling is very, very popular right now in jewelry and that was a look I wanted to create. The final charm was embossed with my textile folder, and then the raised areas were painted with a silver Galaxy marker.
Stop by the rest of the Pink Papery Studios team. They have created some really beautiful cards for this release! I will be back later with another card showing another use for this set. I just finished it (Friday, midnight) and pre-scheduling this post. Since I broke my Ott-Light nighttime pictures are just not in the cards!
Have a beautiful day!!
