Birthday Gift


I made this black and white necklace for a friend for her birthday - it's made using 5 strings of different size black and white beads which are then twisted together. I then decorated a little box I gor from Hobbycraft to put it in by painting it with white Acrylic paint, adding Brilliance Moonlight White paint to give it a bit of shine and then scrunching up a piece of copier paper, dipping it into Brlliance Black and dabbing it onto the box. The image on the top is from the Crafty Individual set CI-265 stamped onto a piece of stampbord. I used the same image for the card matted and layered onto black and silver card and then black card and white card which has been embossed using the Diamonds in the Rough folder on m Cuttlebug.

In actual fact two gifts - the necklance and the box. If it's for the friend who I think she is and she loves birds she will be bowled over when she opens this. Elegant is what springs to mind. Lynne x
