Instructions:

  1. The stamping and painting will need to be done twice since this necklace is completed with the layered technique. Basecoat the paper with Cool Neutral. Place the postage stamp onto an acrylic handle. Dampen a cosmetic sponge and remove as much water as possible. Pour a puddle of Lamp Black + Primary Blue (1:5) out on the palette paper. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Pounce the sponge onto the stamp and stamp onto the mixed media paper. The details should be easily seen and not be too dark. Then put of Lamp Black and stamp the flowers and butterfly.
  2.  Using a bubble palette, place about a dime size drop of True Blue into individual bubble. Create a mixture of three parts water and one part Easy Float. Mix one part paint with three parts water or enough water to make the paint transparent. Completely mix the paint in the bubble palette so there is no solid pigment. Using a #2 round wash in the flower and butterfly. Float to shade with True Blue, then Primary Blue.
  3.  When dry, cut the square to fit into the bezel. If you have the die, you can run it through your machine. Manually cut out the flower and butterfly from second image.
  4.  Sprinkle glitter randomly around the flowers. Mix Ice Resin according to manufacturer’s instruction and pour it in to fill half of the bezel. Allow to harden overnight. Glue cut items into position. Add watch gears and glue in place. Allow to dry. Mix additional Ice Resin and fill the bezel. Allow to harden overnight. Add charms, beads, and chain of choice using jump rings.
