"Lifting" with stamps, a fun necklace tutorial with Cheri Piles

I am handing over to Cheri Piles from the Design Team to tell us all what she has created with the August free download stamps.
Thanks Cheri. Love the idea of using your own stamp designs to create bespoke jewelry - this would make a great gift.

''I am loving this month's free negative download!

Chevrons are so "IN" right now so I thought I would try something fun with the one from this month's set!






What you need
(2) 1x3 glass slides,1x3 necklace frame, imagepac or Teresa Collins stampmaker, free chevron stamp design, Cranberry Alcohol ink and some old fashioned nail polish remover.

How to create this project
To start you will drop a few drops of the liquid ink onto the glass and let it dry completely...

TIP: if you get impatient and don't let it dry it will smear - You are welcome, I figured that out just for you!! :)
Now comes the FUN part...you must act quickly here, drop some nail polish remover drops onto your chevron stamp and stamp it onto your glass and it will "LIFT" the alcohol ink off. You WILL have to do this a couple of times to get it all off. The great thing about this is that if you accidentally smear it you can wipe it all off with the remover and start all over.



Whew, see not so bad!



Now slide the other piece of glass over the inked side and slide into your necklace frame and you are all done! Your very own custom chevron necklace!



I hope this inspires you to try something new!''
