Hi! I'm sharing a piece of jewelry that I created for Clearsnap today. Adding character to a plain leather cuff is easy and fun with the Clearsnap Fiesta Queue and Clearsnap Embossing Powder. This fun statement piece will brighten up my wardrobe all Summer long!
Step One: I used the Altenew Modern Beadwork Stamp Set to create a stencil for inking the leather cuff. I stamped one design onto a piece of scrap cardstock three times and then cut the center stamp out of the cardstock to create a guide for inking. This template ensures that my colorful design will be the same size down the entire bracelet. I then used the Clearsnap Colorbox Fiesta Cat's Eye Pigment Ink Queue to add vibrant color to the leather cuff.
Step Two: The generous drying time of pigment ink makes it great for embossing! I covered the inked bracelet with Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder and applied heat to seal the color. Note: This step is a must! Pigment ink is not permanent until embossed!
Step Three: Use the same stamp from Step One, with Colorbox Dragonfly Black Pigment Ink, to add a beadwork pattern to the bracelet. I chose to stamp the blue segments of color.
Heat emboss the black ink with Colorbox Black Embossing Powder.
Step Four: Add a charm to the center of the bracelet.
I absolutely love how this cuff turned out! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
