The mystical energy of the orient on a handmade necklace out of single metal ATC that will definitely catch the eyes. Using StazOn blazing red and royal purple and sponge daubers, I blended the inks creating a cloudy effect with the metallic background. Then the ATC was divided into 3 pieces of different lengths with all corners being round punched. Take some time to smooth the cut edges with some sanding paper to avoid an accidents with your clothes.
Next decorate with the stamps and heat set with the embossing powder to add texture on the metal. Last but not least is a nice layer of GlazOn to secure your creation.
