Birds of a feather project

Good Morning everyone and i hope that you all
had a great weekend.  I taught 2 fun classes up at 
Scrap N Yap over the weekend and had to recoup a little
so now it's time to get up another project this month using a beautiful
 set of charms from Butterbee Scraps called Birds of a feather.
I have a few more projects to post this week but today
i wanted to share a pretty necklace i did using some of my
favorite inks from Tsukineko inks called (Staz On) 

Staz-on is a fantastic ink that comes in so many colors it is 
wonderful and you can color metals with it too
so i thought it would be fun to dab on some color on each of
the pieces to create a pretty water color type backround to
put my birdhouse on. The colors actually bled together
as i dabbed and it think it made it even prettier.

To make this project you are going to need these things
from the Butterbee shop: Birdhouse Charm set,
#678, #294, Bronze Chain, jump rings and bronze wire
or something to add the beads onto.

To start just dab on a little staz on ink wherever
you would like to on the pieces and let them dry.

Add a bead that you created at the bottom with your
jewelry tools and another bead on the metal that you
are going to color with a q-tip and staz on in pink.

Make 3 sets of the beads for each side by using one
of the clear beads then a ceramic bead and then a
clear bead as shown.  Attach them to each other with a jump
ring that you have put a bead on.  Add a piece of chain
to each of the ends of the necklace and then finish it
with a lobster claw and a jump ring to close it.

I really like the burnished colors in the metals and
it really sets off the colors in the ceramic beads that
i used for it.  Have fun and hope you will try
inking some of your pieces from Butterbee Scraps to
try something new with them and maybe create a few to give as 
gifts maybe for Mother's day this year. It's really easy and fun.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to watch
all of the Butterbee Scraps You Tube Videos for
more ideas from the rest of our team.
