Nice & Shabby Does It....

...As you probably know, I have a range of stamps called Stitchels (cos they have stitches in them...and my name is Hels LOL) As well as the stamps themselves there are some Stitchels Shabby's to go with them...all of which are handmade by my fair inky fingers, all different and ever so slightly battered so they go really well with all kinds of grungey and distressy stuff.




I took one of these Shabby's and popped it into a Melt Pot of clear UTEE...very much like the Faux Procelain that Jennie did a few weeks ago...I was really chuffed with the effect that I got, so I added a little pin clasp to the back and voila! A brooch! And a sturdy one at that ... surprisingly I thought that it would be a bit brittle but it is fab, the paper inside helps it to flex a bit I think. So, here is a piccie I took of three that are now brooches...and the others were used on the Sunday Stamper box...which reminds me to remind you...the Sunday Stamper this week is 2 years old and is sponsored by The Artistic Stamper...click HERE to go to the post so you can still join in if you like :O))

Thanks for looking...
