From Me To You
This is what Zoe says about her theme:
"The theme from 'Me to You' is one of gift giving, we all enjoy making things for others and giving them. We would like you to share with us a gift you have made for someone. "
I am warning you in advance, this is a bit on the lengthy side so make sure you've got a cuppa!
My gift is for my mum. It' was her birthday very recently, and I decided to use something very new to me (which I've been itching to try for a while) to make her a gift, along with a card. Yes, you did read that correct, I made a card! I don't make cards very often but thought I should make a bit of a special effort for my mum, as she loves handmade cards:
Debi from our DT in New Zealand, as I couldn't get hold of this in the UK (thank you Debi :-)).
Now onto my mum's little gift:
I made her a ring, with some Ice Resin! This stuff really fascinates me for some reason (even though I've used the one step UV resin a few times). I finally took the plunge and bought some recently, and I have to say, I love it - there's something very relaxing about drizzling this into a bezel from the end of a lollipop stick (sounds nuts, I know!).
I sealed a piece of torn book page with Modge Podge, then placed a jewellery finding on the top of this inside the ring blank, which I had touched over with a little green patina gilding wax. I then added a tiny little butterly on the top, sitting only just inside the resin.. It's fairly simple but it's my first attempt, and I'm quite proud of it, simple or not, lol!
Our sponsor this fortnight was Tanda Stamps but they have sadly gone out of business recently. However, Zoe still has a prize to give from Tanda, along with her creation for this fortnight's challenge which is amazing!
Please pop over and have a look at what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you, and I hope you will find the time to join in with us this fortnight.
Tomorrow and Wednesday, I will be able to catch up with commenting, thank you for popping over.
Bye for now
