Not just for cardstock!

Hello and welcome to the last week of Dreamweaver's "April Showers Bring May Flowers" Challenge! You only have until Monday, April 30 to link your creation to the Dreamweaver blog or email a photo to Lynell so don't delay. You know you want to win some free stencils!!!

For my last post of  April, I thought I'd share something other than a card.

This is a polymer clay pendant I made using Dreamweaver's LS75 Rose stencil:

It was so very easy to do and something that gets a LOT of ooh's when I wear it.

I simply conditioned some black polymer clay, and then ran my stencil over the clay, trimmed it to fit into my Amate Studio's square pendant.

With the stencil still in place, I dabbed on some Versamark ink and then brushed on Dreamweaver Metallic F/X.

After baking the clay, I added a couple layers of polymer clay clear glaze to give it that glossy finish.

Very easy, inexpensive and makes a great gift! And it proves that Dreamweaver stencils are not just for cards and cardstock!

I hope you've enjoyed this month of April Showers and May Flowers! Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's creations this week.

I won't be back until next Thursday. Too much to do with the relocating of my craft space.

Oh Man! I haven't tried clay now I'm off to ransack my husbands craft area, I KNOW he has some I can swipe! Your pendant is beautiful!
