I was so excited when I found out the color of the month was Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 – Living Coral. Why? Well, this color brings to mind summer, the beach and warm temps, something that I’m all for at the moment. I used the Coral Ultimate Pigment Refill on SHEET Metal circle charms as my jumping off point. I decided it would be fun to add a bit of blue sky using the Versa Magic Ink Sea Breeze and the sparkle of the water with irRESISTible Pico Embellisher – Shimmer to these Charming Coral pieces as well.
Time: 1 hour
Pounce VersaMagic pigment ink in SeaBreeze and VersaColor inker in Coral (see link below) onto the circle pieces. Sprinkle the charm with clear embossing powder; shake off excess and return it to the jar. Heat the embossing powder to melt.
Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Jet Black StazOn ink around the edge of the charm.
Stamp desired texture onto the charms using Jet Black StazOn ink.
Glue shell charm to small circle using On Point Glue. Cover each charm with a layer of Shimmer irRESISTible Pico Embellisher and let dry.
Use jewelry tools to secure both charms to the other; add additional charms or beads as desired. Thread charms onto a ball chain necklace.
I had so much fun making the first set of charms I just kept going. This time I decided to ink up a few fender washers. These charms were made using the same technique as above using steps 1-3. Antiqued copper charms and findings to finish off the washers.
