In addition to the current “five” themed mini challenge over at Anything But A Card, the spotlight challenge, as set by the very talented Brenda Burfeind, is running alongside it. The spotlight provides the chance for you to learn more about the ABAC Design Team and then join in with their challenge theme. Brenda is showcasing some amazing jewellery and would like to see projects that incorporate marbling. I knew immediately that this was an opportunity for a little bit of melt pot marvelousness:
This is probably the simplest project ever and yet the finished result is, even if I do say so myself(!), stunning results for very little effort!
I melted some Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Red UTEE, together with some clear, and then sprinkled in some gold mica powder and the tiniest bit of black UTEE. I drew the spatula through it to create marbling and then simply poured into the bezel. I found it much easier to pour into the larger bezel that the smaller ones that I used previously. The great thing is that once cool, the shape releases easily so you can use it independently if you wish.
Thanks for buzzing by.
