Hookedoncrafts 9th challenge "Anything but a card"

Its challenge time again over at Hookedoncraft! The challenge this fortnight at HOOKEDONCRAFT CHALLENGES is "ANYTHING BUT A CARD!"

 
I got a little excited and couldn't just stop at one creation so I made a few things!
 
Here is the group shot.
 

CHARM BRACELET


BAG CHARM


I used the Cute puppy small and Large stamps from HOOKEDONCRAFT I stamped the images onto frosted shrink plastic using Stazon ink and carefully coloured the images with Copic markers being careful to not touch the ink lines. I also used some of the new charms from the Misc pack which I got from HOOKEDONCRAFT
I used a range of swarovski crystal beads, ladybug beads, other beads, chain and findings from my stash to create the charm bracelet and bag charm.


HAIRCLIP



HEADBAND





I created the hairclip and headband using a range of Mulberry paper flowers and berry head stamens from HOOKEDONCRAFT
I used my glimmer mists to alter the colour of the leaves, flowers and berry head stamens to get the exact colour I wanted. I used hot glue to glue the flowers onto the metal hairclip base and headband base. I also used some swarovski pointy back crystals for the centre of the flowers which I got from my stash. I finished it off with a touch of stickles on the edges of the flowers and leaves because you can never have too much bling!
 
I made all these as gifts for a good friend Katrina who lives in the USA and has recently sent me a heap of parcels full of Mickey mouse and winnie the pooh baby clothes for our twin babies which are due in approx 2 months. I hope she doesn't see this post before she receives her parcel!
