October Papertrey Ink BlogHop

Hi there, thanks so much for checking out my project for this months bloghop in which we were

to create anything with polka dots. Fun stuff cause I loves me some polka dots!! Since I took a jewelry making class not too long ago I decided to make a polka dot snowflake necklace. I bought an inexpensive large charm and painted it green with pink polka dots. The polka dots were added with PTI Polka Dot Basic stamp (I do believe this is my favorite PTI stamp set that I have) I then stamped a snow flake from Rustic Snowflakes with white pigment ink as white paint did not give a good image. After that all dried I covered it in Mod Podge for a nice shiny coat. I used seed beads that matched the paint and faux pearls and silver spacer beads. Of course I needed a card to match just incase I decided to give this as a gift. This was a really fun project to create and my daughter was right there with me creating one of her own too. Thanks for looking I hope you enjoy all the other projects you can find on the PTI forum here.
Cheers!
