Hi crafty friends!
Sometimes, life doesn't go as planned. A few weeks ago, I became part of a new design team with ColoriQue, and I was super excited about it. Here was my first post - an upcycled tassel.
Unfortunately, the design team has dissolved due to the illness of the designer and creator of ColoriQue. Praying for a return to good health for you, Lisa! Since I was already halfway through my post for the next month, I decided to complete it and post it here.
The theme this month was weddings and I created bridesmaid jewelry. I chose some acrylic roses and some silver leaves that I found at the craft store to color with the ColoriQue inks. The silver leaves were part of this headband.
I colored the cream acrylic roses with Pink Ice. It gave them a beautiful enamel-like look. Yes, it works on acrylic, too.
Here are the earrings and pendant I created. Each rose and leaf hangs from a jump ring attached to the earring wire for a swingy earring. A beaded dangle completes the earring.
ColoriQue is available through Lisa's site for awhile, then through the Clearsnap site. It's great to work with - it blends easily to create a whole range of colors, has intense pigment and a little goes a long way! I certainly will continue to use it in my design and artwork and will miss working with Lisa and all the design team.
