Faux Bois means false wood and is commonly employed to make something that’s not wood (or something made of a lesser quality wood) look more high-class. I decided to see if I could achieve a similar effect by layering carefully placed stamps and mediums onto cardstock. The result was a pretty good imitation of a lacquered trinket box—perfect for gift giving or miniature applications!

Create a Dragon Necklace & Matching Fairy Gift Box

Ink Blended Dragon Necklace by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

The mystical and powerful energy of a dragon is difficult to refute. Perhaps that is why we have always been so attracted to movies and shows with fire breathing dragons as a major feature—much like today’s current obsession for many, HBO’s Game of Thrones. What better way to boost your style and personal mojo than with a handmade dragon necklace.

Using StazOn Blazing Red and Royal Purple with sponge daubers, I blended these two ink colors on a SHEET Metal ATC, creating a cloudy sunset effect on the metallic background. StazOn is a solvent ink and will stay on the metal once dry. After it is dry, divide the  ATC into 3 pieces of large, medium and small lengths with all corners being round punched and sanded. Next decorate the pieces with the dragon & branch stamp by stamping with VersaMark, coating with black embossing powder and heat set. I also did a second layer of stamping and embossing with silver. After the inking and stamping are complete, add a layer of GlazOn for an extra layer of protection for the art.

Finish the necklace by attaching the pieces together in a cascading order from large to small. Punch holes to attach all the pieces together with jump rings. Your dragon spirit will show well!

Whether you build a special spot for them in your garden or look for them in a ring of toadstools, fairies are elusive creatures that have fascinated children and adults for ages. Of course, if you’re lucky enough to get a visit from a fairy, you’ll need a place to store any gifts she might leave behind.
