Hi Y’all! Lisa Marie here, showing you how to use ColorBox® Souvenir Stamps to make a Cowgirl Domino Pendant. Even though I am a jewelry designer, I have a nice collection of rubber stamps in my studio and these Souvenir Stamps are part of that collection. Stamps can be used in many techniques for jewelry making and today I will show you one of them.
You will need to round-up the following supplies:
• ColorBox® Souvenir Stamps, Texas
• ColorBox® Archival Ink, Mudslide, Wicked Black
• Smooch®, Bayside & Sassy Pink
• ColorBox® Color Blender
• Card Stock, Cream
• Color Pencils, Brown & Light Brown, Black
• Acrylic Craft Paint, Black
• Pink Rhinestone, 4mm
• Glitter Glue, Gold
• Gloss Clear Coat (brushable)
• E6000 Glue
• “Cowgirl” printed in fancy script
Let’s get this rodeo started!
Stamp the boot stamp onto the cardstock using Mudslide ink. Using a light brown pencil, color in the boot. Darken the creases in the boot with a dark brown pencil. Use black pencil to color the sole of the boot. Next, accent the designs on the boot with Smooch®, Bayside and Sassy Pink, as shown in the picture.
Next we need to cut the paper to fit the domino. To do this: lay the domino over the boot, center and trace the domino, then cut out. Apply decoupage to the smooth side of the domino. Lay the paper on top, smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles. Cut out the “Cowgirl” words and decoupage, to the boot paper. Apply a top coat of decoupage over the entire top of the paper. Set aside to dry. When dry, use a Xacto knife to trim any excess paper from the sides of the domino.
Use the Color Blender to smudge the Wicked Black ink onto the edges of the paper, to make the paper look worn. Next add a small amount of glue to the back of the rhinestone and place over the “stone” on the boot. Accent the “Cowgirl” with gold glitter glue. Set aside to fully dry for several hours.
Next apply resin to the top of the domino, following manufacturer’s directions. I use makeup sponge applicators for easy application of the resin. Set aside to dry, following directions of resin.
When resin is completely dry, paint the sides of the domino with black paint. You may need to do several coats of paint. Once paint is dry, seal with a brush on gloss clear coat. When clear coat is completely dry, add a glue on bail to the back side of domino. To complete your necklace, simply add chain, beaded chain or a leather cord.
This technique can be done with any of the ColorBox® Souvenir Stamp Sets. There are many themes to choose from. Here are just a few themes: London, Texas, New York and Paris. What Souvenir Stamp set will you choose?
