Paper Magiclay Pendant for JAI 76

It's been a while since the last post but I'm glad to be back stamping after a very hectic schedule with two weekends away and a very busy time at work.

Delys has provided us with a beautiful inspiration photo for Just Add Ink's 76th Challenge and I thought I'd try something a little different this time around.



Paper Magiclay Pendant - JAI 76


The Photo for our Inspiration Challenge




I bought some Paper Magiclay from a local craft shop and blended some dark blue and white clay together to form this gorgeous marine blue colour.

I used SU's 'seaweed flourish' and small shell stamp from the set called, Ocean Commotion and pressed them into the rolled out clay to create a bit of 'debossing'.

A drinking glass was used to 'cut out' the pendant shape and this was then attached to a split ring before leaving it to dry for the next 24 hours.


The next night, I sponged White Staz On over the 'seaweed flourish' to highlight the pattern on the clay and then used Black Staz On to stamp the remaining stamps onto the flat section of the pendant and the 'debossed shell'.


Paper Magiclay is so light and can also be used for some fun 3D embellishments for cards.



To make the pendant more durable I will eventually coat it with Crystal Effects.


This challenge has brought out some amazing projects from the Design Team at Just Add Ink. Why don't you hop on over there and take a look for yourself?

Happy stamping,

Bron this is super clever. I imagine when the Crystal Effects goes on it'll really shine. Excellent way to go with this inspiration pic for sure.
