Silver and Gold Necklace

For my entry to this week Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #90 Silver and/or Gold, I decided to try a different medium.   Instead of using paper, I used Cheery Lynn dies to cut aluminium sheet to create a necklace.  I am amazed at how well the Cheery Lynn designs dies are able to cut the intricate doilies design even on the aluminium sheets.

Using the following doilies dies, I formed the flower petals:
- Base layer from large Italian Flourish Doily
- Middle layer from mini Polynesian Sails Doily
- Center layer from tiny Italian Flourish Doily.
I made some fold lines to create a 3D flower.

I also added some leaves and flourish from part of the Fanciful Flourish.  The flourishes are very fine and I put some Glossy Accent behind the aluminium swirl and the areas where the leaves joined with the swirl to reinforced them.

As for the beautiful flying creatures, I used one of the butterflies from the Small Exotic Butterflies set and the Small Lace Faerie Queen butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Pop-Up Clutch Purse

I made a pop-up card for the Simon Says Stamp Pin It! Challenge.

For the bag exterior, I cut long strectch of lace using Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Edger die and sew and pleated the lace. 
Once the card is opened, the content of the purse are revealed.  I created a slot (which is currently holding a Things To Do card) for additional messages.    The laces surrounding the slot is cut using Cheery Lynn Designs Scandinavian Hearts frame.  I decorated the perfume bottles with butterflies (Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Dimensional Butterflies die and Cheery Lynn Designs Olive Branches die).
On the bottom of the page, I have the key holder and a eye-shadow set.  I cut a slit in the French Pastry Tiny Doilies and folded them to make the flower on the key holder.   As for cloisonné on top of the eye shadow box,  I used Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Corner Deco D to cut a gold colored aluminium foil.  I painted the holes with markers and sealed them with glossy accents.
