just because necklace...

I just realized I hadn't shared my Project of the Month yet that I did for Lizzie Anne Designs. I used the Great Outdoors mushroom stamp to create a necklace and matching card. For full details check out this and the rest of the DT's Projects of the Month.

supplies used:
stamps : Lizzie Anne Designs (the Great Outdoors, August Monthly Mix)
other: watercolors, Sharpie paint markers, copper foil, Stazon, solder, jump ring, glaze

I hate soldering(hate it!!!) so you can see that I cheated and only soldered the jump ring on. I used a copper patina to change the jump ring to copper color. I have a necklace similiar to this that I made over a year ago that is still holding up after all the daily wear and tear. I'm not sure how the adhesive in the copper foil will hold over time, so if you're making these for longevity I probably wouldn't recommend skipping over the soldering part.
