Stampendous DIY Bangles Week

Stampendous has teamed up with DIY Bangles for a fantastic collaboration. It's been so much fun creating with their wooden bangles, beads and wreath forms.

I created two bangles using some of my favorite Stampendous products and the Pentagon Bangle.

I painted my first bangle with various colors of Twinkling H2Os watercolor paint. I saturated the paint with lots of water beforehand so that the color would go on thick. After the paint was dry, I added Stampendous Aged Gold and Aged Silver Embossing Enamels. These enamels are so easy to work with. I simply swiped the bangle with my VersaMark WaterMark ink pad, sprinkled the enamel over the wet ink and heat set with my heat tool. I sprayed a coat of Krylon Crystal Clear Glaze on the bangle to give it some shine.

My second bangle was painted with the Pearl Adirondack Paint Dabber and then Twinkling H2Os. When dry, I stamped the new Stampendous Leaf Sprig image onto the flat panels of the bangle using Tsukineko StazOn Jet Black and Delicata Golden Glitz ink. When the ink was dry, I added a little distressing by rubbing a black Gelato pigment stick around the edges.
