Lovin' this vintage heart charm

Pin It!
Hello Friends! Heather here with my Fourth post for Globecraft and Piccolo. This month we were challenged to create charms using the new UV Resin and 3D Enamel Gels. I am having way too much fun using these products! You really need to treat yourself to some!

Step 1:
Apply a dime size amount of the Wheat 3D Enamel Gel to the heart shaped Bezel. Using a No. 6 or No. 8 flat brush, move the gel around to achieve a textured look; refer to photo below.

Step 2: I inked the whole piece with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink. I did a couple coats. 

Step 3: I applied the Piccolo Embossing Powder Adhesive carefully to the edges of the piece, then applied the Ruby Red Slippers embossing powder.

Step 4: I used my Ranger Heat it tool to heat up the Ruby Red Slippers embossing powder. I love the colors of this embossing powder. Gorgeous!

Step 5: I used the Glastique Finishing Glaze to adhere the Juliet Lace to the heart bezel.

Step 6: I used the Fine Tip Applicator and the Wheat Cream 3D Enamel Gel to cover the Cerchio Key Charm. Honestly you need at least TWO of the Fine Tip Applicators. You will love these for applying your enamels...and your glues. Let this air dry for about 5-10 minutes.

Step 7: I applied the Piccolo Instant UV Resin to the top and bottom of my heart bezel, avoiding the lace area. Then set it in my Teresa Collins Stamp maker UV light to cure for 3 minutes.

This stuff is FABULOUS! Go ahead and treat yourself to the large deserve it! Honestly if you are anything like me...once you make one, you will want to make a million more :0).

Once I pulled it out, I used the Fine Tip Applicator and the Yellow Ochre 3D Enamel Gel to apply some little dots in the lace work.

Step 8: Next I inked the Cerchio Key with Vintage photo distress ink, then applied my Instant UV Resin and cured it in my Teresa Collins Stamp Maker UV Light for 3 minutes.

Step 9: Next I used the Glastique again to adhere the May Art leaves to the Juliet lace. I attached the Cerchio Key charm to the heart bezel with a vintage bronze O-Ring and used Cotton Candy Baker's Twine to wrap around and top off my Cerchio Key Charm with a bow.

Step 9: I used Glastique to adhere my flat-back rose and vintage bronze bead spacers. Using the Fine Tip Applicator, I added a drop of Satin Pearl White 3D Enamel Gel to create faux pearls to the center of each vintage bronze bead spacers. So now they look like little vintage flowers, reminiscent of an old piece of vintage jewelry. 

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, and that you decide to treat yourself to a few enamel gels, charms, embossing powders, necklaces and the new Instant UV Resin! I am telling you....YOU WILL HAVE FUN!
