Stampotique Designers Challenge #50 ~ Wearable Art

It's that time again.. .. time to be inspired and join the Stampotique Designers as they challenge you to create something for the latest challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog.

Val is the new hostess for the latest challenge Wearable Art  and here is what she had to say..

 Valerie would like to see what fun ideas you can come up with as you create something that you can wear - perhaps even a matching set!  Will you take something apart and rebuild it, alter an existing item or will you start from scratch?  And then of course, the real test will be - will you wear it!?! :)   

What a fantastic challenge!

I've made a bag charm using a fantastic NEW range of stamps from the very talented artist Janet Klein.

 Oooooh.. this was the best fun ever to make! 

Thank You Janet for sharing your amazing drawing talents with us..xx

and of course to Carol & Jim for making them into stamps ♥

To make the bag charm first of all, I printed the stamps onto white shrink plastic using black Stazon, coloured the images and anxiously covered my ears while I used the heat gun!! (always a few near heart attacks involved watching the images shrink!!) NOT forgetting to punch a small hole into the plastic before shrinking.. (for the ring) thats the important bit!

I used a collection of beads and brass charms and hung them on various size lengths of chain and added some co-ordinating ribbon to the keyring.

Stamps used:

SO, what will you create? I hope you can join us..

The Design Team are also excited to announce a Guest Designer call over on the challenge blog.. would you like to join us for a whole month?

The winners are also announced from our latest gorgeous challenge Purple/Pink with black, was it you? My apologies for not getting the chance to visit everyone.. I've been without internet for almost a week.. I plan to catch up with everyone's creations soon.

Thank you for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance. 

Happy crafting, Gez ♥
