Resin with a Vintage Feel


Carmi Cimiata is a fun and funny gal. She runs the vivacious Resin Crafts Blog where she explores the most amazing uses of EnviroTex Craft Resin. Take a walk through her projects, they will astound you. She makes it look so easy we just had to try it.
We saw the potential immediately! With all our terrific images plus all the amazing things you can float or embed in the resin…ooh… Fran•táge, here we come!





My post today features the Perfectly Clear Cherub Wishes set, both stamped on the card, as well as on a piece of tissue and adhered inside the brass bezel. I sprinkled some Crushed Glass Glitter and Color Fragments inside, before pouring in my premixed Envirotex Jewelry Resin. I added a couple of drops of Aspen Leaf Color Solutions Alcohol Inks for a more vintage feel. I turned the bezel into a dangling broach with some May Arts twill, an antique button, twine and a jumpring. This was pinned to satin ribbon wrapped over a paper covered chipboard panel. The kraft card base was tent-style for more stability. This creates a gift card with that extra something special.


Now is your turn to leave me a comment, and check out the rest of the extremely talented ladies posting today. Keep coming back to check out everyone's creations this week, follow the directions below, and your could win one of these amazing prize packages:

Each prize package from us will include a pack of Jewelry Resin, a bottle cap, bezel and button to try, and the Stampendous Charm Collection Perfectly Clear Stamps – perfect jewelry sized stamps for your crafting pleasure!

 


** Why do I need to SHARE the Facebook post ?  Because Facebook has changed the way they show posts from a Page to that Page’s fans. (There are millions of posts a day now!) When you “share” a post it lets Facebook know you want to see posts from us. It also tells your friends what we’re up to and extends our “reach”. Maybe they will come like us, too! That IS why we’re doing this, to meet more people! Plus when you share, it lets us see that you did, that makes it easier to pick a winner for the contest.

Very cute cherub--love the glitter and fragments.

The cherub design is so vintage looking and the orange color just pops off that soft blue and tan background. The addition of the ribbon makes it all come together beautifully. Great job!
Lea said…
I love the mix of vintage images with bright colors, so often we relate vintage to softer colors. You've really made it POP! Love it!

Pam I am loving seeing the various uses for the resin! I've never thought of it as a card or scrapbook page embellishment so this is very exciting for me! Now to explore the rest of your blog!
