Hello Gorgeous!

Well the title of today's post is not something I have heard for a long time.....guess I am at that age, oh well!

But lets not wallow in self pity, I thought I would share with you a Keychain or Necklace that can be mounted onto a card and given as a gift.

To create the card, I took some 'Fall Festival' 16-002 mix and match cardstock and  repeatedly stamped  the leaves from the 'Inspiring' cling set using Tangelo Memento ink.  I then stamped two girls (for details on how to colour follow instructions on You Tube video for necklace) and mounted onto 'Fall Festival' 16-003 card and adhered to main card using foam pads. The Sentiment from the 'Hello Gorgeous' 30-097 transparent set was then stamped and embossed in copper. I then cut a slit in the top of the card to allow the chain to be threaded and tied off with ribbon and a bow.

Details on how to create the necklace can be found in the You Tube video below. Stamps used:-  'Letter Background' 1999L & 'Tres Chic' 4260K

Copic markers used in this project (from the top of her head down) are as follows:-
RV29, YG95, Y17, YR07, R59, 0, YR15, R17, R27, YR07, E17, R59, E51, E53, RV21 & E0000

Thanks for joining me today, did you know the design team will be showcasing the new fashion girl stamps over on the Penny Black blog all week, so do hop on over here to check them out.

Have a great week everyone!
Hugs Cathy

So helpful as I've never seen a memory frame used & thought this looked so complicated but I think I might dare give it a go after seeing your clear demonstration - a perfect example of how encouraging these videos & tutorials really are. I love the detail of your glittering the back & the small colouring details like not giving her freckles & using pink for her lips plus shading even such a small image - such details make such a difference. It was a treat to watch you in actiion.
