So...this week we are featuring Backgrounders. It is no secret that I love
backgrounders! They are so versatile and can be used in card making and so much more. For my sample, I created pendants using one of my favorite CHF backgrounders, Leaves #3.
These pendants started out with Sculpey Clay in ivory and green. I conditioned the clay and flattened it out before firmly pressing the backgrounder into the clay. I used a hobby blade and a ruler to cut the pendants into the rectangle shape and used a straw to make the hole at the top. After they baked for about 30 minutes and cooled, I used acrylic paint on the fronts. I let the paint slightly dry before I wiped a soft cloth across the top. The paint remained in the indentations left by the stamp. I added a length of satin cord and now they are ready to wear or share. This could easily become addicting.
