A Garden Sweetly Told

For my 100 Proof Press piece this week I tried something different and made a necklace. Costume jewelry is one of my guilty pleasures.... making it and buying it too! LOL. I had this little hinged pendant from an old Christmas decoration and thought it'd make just the right base for a stamped image.

I used Elwain's walkway gate 2594N stamp and them water colored a peaceful garden scene with roses and a rose arch. I had some metal flowers, bugs and a hummingbird charm, so I used Ranger Alcohol ink and painted them all pretty colors. To tone down the colors I wiped on white acrylic paint. Glued on my sentiment "a garden sweetly told" and I was already to string it on a silver chain. I also have shown you a photo of this necklace on my dressform called Mary Lou.

Hope you can take a walk in a sweet garden this week.
always, gerri
