The new StazOn Pigment ink is here!! Yay! I am so excited to share this wonderful new ink with you! I can hardly contain myself. I made a simple, springtime, gnome card to show you some of the versatility of this new ink. I stamped Peacock Feathers on kraft cardstock and Lemon Drop on a metal tag and both look great! This ink will work on porous and non-porous surfaces, dries quickly, and is OPAQUE, and sooo crisp! I really don’t know what else you need… Ok, I’m done gushing…for now. 🙂

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.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

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.


Step 2

Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Jet Black StazOn ink around the edge of the charm.


Step 3

Stamp desired texture onto the charms using Jet Black StazOn ink.


Step 4

Glue shell charm to small circle using On Point Glue. Cover each charm with a layer of Shimmer irRESISTible Pico Embellisher and let dry.


Step 5

Use jewelry tools to secure both charms to the other; add additional charms or beads as desired. Thread charms onto a ball chain necklace.

BONUS!!

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.
