Delicious Doodles Challenge #7 It's All New To Me!!

Happy New Year folks!! A bit late I know, but I've been deprived of my craft space as apparently Christmas dinner and entertaining was more important than my crafting!!! As a result I have had nothing to show you. Anyway, today I do have something to show you cos it's challenge time over at Delicious Doodles! So what are we upto this week? Well it's a really nice and easy challenge - try something new. It can be a new technique or product, as long as it's new to you! So get out your new stash and come and play.

I've decided to try something totally new in everyway! I've made a necklace using the new image Wistful Fairy from Delicious Doodles  and my new memory frames and glass slides that my lovely friend bought me for Christmas. I've also tried a new technique (well new to me anyway) "Caught in Crystal", which I absolutely love! So expect to see this one in use again in the future. The only old thing about this project (well apart from the creator) is the black silk cord which I've had for ages. I have to apologise for the pictures - this project was a complete nightmare to photograph and to be honest really doesn't show the colours and sparkle off very well at all :(

The image was coloured with Promarkers and some sparkle was added with Sakura Gel Pens and Stickles. I created the background using the caught in crystal technique. The whole lot was then placed between two sheets of memory glass and into the frame. I added a length of black silk cord to finish.
