Easy Necklace-H2H Entry

My entry this week for the challenge at http://www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com is a quick and easy necklace. The challenge was to use the colors black, tulip and buttercream. I used Close To My Heart inks:Black, Tulip and Creme Brulee (subbed for the buttercream). I stamped a flower from the CTMH Flower Pot stamp set ( a former SOM-not available)and the word "joy" from the CTMH Soul Mates stamp set in Black. Then I used a blender pen dipped in the Creme Brulee ink pad to color in the center of the flower and the blender pen dipped in the Tulip ink pad to color in the flower. I used the same technique to color the leaves with Sweet Leaf. I wrapped a piece of CTMH Waxy Flax around the whole thing for a bit of flair. I used a pendant frame with glass purchased from HL to frame the tiny piece of art and threaded a long piece of CTMH White Daisy Organdy Ribbon through the ring. Now I have a new handcrafted necklace to wear!
