Retro Jewellery Set by Alison

Hello Stampers!
I have a little jewellery set to share with you today.
I took a metal bookplate, 2 ribbon slides, & 2 metal beads, & applied some Vintaj Patina to them. I used ruby, rust & clay. I sanded the beads & ribbon slides back, to reveal the designs, then coated them all with Vintaj Glaze, to seal the paint.

I stamped the scroll image from the Architecture 1 Plate onto white card, coloured it with distress inks, then stamped 'Curves' from the Architecture 3 Plate with black Archival ink. I cut out the image to fit behind the bookplate, glued it using glossy accents, & added a coat of glossy accents to the front, to seal the image. I also sealed the back, to make it more durable.
Finally, I assembled the jewellery, using some more metal beads, silver chain, & jump rings.
I hope you like this fun little set, thanks for looking,
Alison xxx
