Fashionably Altered..

Hello - it's time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, thank you for all the amazing entries for our Anything Goes challenge, great to see so many people joining in ! This week the very talented Joanna has asked us to 'alter it'. 
This gave me the perfect nudge I needed to do something with this rather plain necklace I've had lurking around for ages -
So I got out the alcohol inks, and just played around adding colours till I was happy. Next I added some stamping, with  text and flourish stamps.
I wanted some texture so I added some bead gel, which I dabbed with more alcohol inks when dry.
I added a butterfly charm to the central piece and there it was , finished.
I don’t do much ‘altering’ and really enjoyed this. All I need now is some summery weather so I can wear it with something pretty ! I hope you find something to alter and join us this fortnight – it can be anything you have hanging around, and don't forget the randomly chosen winner gets a voucher to spend at Flonzcraft. We are a stamping challenge so we MUST see stamping!  Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your altered creations ! Esther xx


  1. Oh wow, Esther, this is gorgeous! Like you, I would be dying to wear it. If I had spotted this it would definitely had 'spoken to me'. Great job!
