5. Use the stencil to decorate the front of box with desired colors of Memento ink.

6. Once the inks have dried, apply Creative Medium Shimmer to add depth and interest.

Washer Jewelry

by Maureen



  • IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko: StazOn Jet Black, Metallic Silver; GlazOn, InkBlushers
  • Stampin’ Up: scroll stamp
  • 1″ washers, wire & chain


1.  Using an InkBlusher, cover the washers with StazOn Jet Black, let dry, then cover with GlazOn and let dry. You’ll want to repeat this process a few times to get total coverage.

2.  Stamp scroll design on washers with StazOn Metallic Silver, let dry before applying a final coat of GlazOn.


3. Wire the washers together and add enough chain to wear as a bracelet or necklace.
