  • 2. Die cut paper panel using large die. Basecoat Desert Sand; let dry. Stamp with all stamps using Traditional Burnt Umber. Wash butterfly and large flower Deep Burgundy and stem and leaves Hauser Light Green. Die cut large oval from stamped design; coat with matte medium to keep resin from saturating paper. Sandwich stamped oval between back and bezel sides; adhere in place.
  • 3. Mix resin following manufacturer's instructions. Pour just enough resin into bezel to coat stamped image. Sprinkle resin with glitter; let harden overnight.
  • 4. Stamp flower and butterfly multiple times on paper using Lamp Black. Wash over images Medium Flesh; shade Deep Burgundy. Fussy cut painted images; coat with matte medium to seal.
  • 5. Adhere cut images to resin; let dry completely. Mix resin again as before, pour into bezel until full. Let harden overnight.
  • 6. Attach pendant to necklace through eye pin using jump ring.
  • Tip
  • 1. Printing stamps with acrylic paint instead of ink is easy. Apply small amount of paint to craft mat or gel printing plate. Dampen a cosmetic sponge; remove as much water as possible. Pounce the sponge into the paint to coat surface, then offload onto clean area of mat or plate. Sponge should be covered by paint, but the sponge's texture should be readily visible. Pounce sponge evenly over stamp surface to print.
