Parisian Pin by Lynne Moncrieff



Recently I made a pendant using Oxford Impressions Marie Antoinette plate.  I return to that particular place, this time to make a pin. 

The use of the Trinket Pin was inspired by a friend, who gifted me a beautiful piece of jewellery where she had used such a pin.


Distress Ink:-  Pumice Stone and Antique Linen
Jewellery Pliers
Extras:- Metal Filigree Cabochon Frame, Pearl Bead, Eye Pin and Jump Rings



·       Starting with the Stampbord:- Set Stampbord on craft mat. Apply the Distress Inks directly to create texture. Set with heat gun. Stamp damask design (Oxford Impressions Marie Antoinette) with Pumice Stone. Heat set.

·       Stamp Paris with StazOn Jet Black. Heat set (although this isn’t necessary).  Liberally apply Ranger Crackle Accents. Leave to set.

·       At this stage I picked off some of the crackle to create a more distressed appearance. Lightly apply Pumice Stone with sponge. Apply PaperArtsy Satin Finish. I applied 3 coats.

·       Now to create the pin:- Adhere Stampbord to metal filigree frame with silicone glue. Using jewellery pliers ,attach a selection of jump rings, eye pin and pearl bead to a Tim Holtz Trinket Pin.

·       It is now ready to pin onto your chosen garment.


Until next week.
