New background stamps!

I just had to try out the new background stamps on some Midnight Art glass!







I used Opals embossing enamels and added some Crackle Glossy Accents to one.

I discovered that if you put down a layer of clear (Franklin) Opals first and then add colored Opals you get a more transparent look to your finished glass pendant. :)

I need to add some bales or beading or wire wrapping to these and get them finished to wear.

Midnight Art Ranch Retreat Gourd Classes



If you blow away all the gourd dust and strip away the dust mask, it's me, Linda Hanson, framed by my Dremel Flex Shaft, having the time of my life carving a gourd. Many thanks to Bonnie Gibson for her wonderful instruction and creative talent.
