Faux Quilt stamps by Ann Butler meet Tiffany Windsor's Cool2Cast




Hello everybody! I just LOVE Summer...... the kids are out of school, longer days and warm mornings. A chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives and appreciate our time together, making memories in the beautiful outdoors, now that I have mentioned my love affair with summer lets talk about the project I made for Ann Butler Designs and Tiffany Windsor's Cool@Cast blog hop and I loved every minute of creating the projects.

For my first project I created 2 different sized pendants, so depending on the occasion I can use either.

For a second project I created a very bold piece of Jewelry.

I am pretty happy with the results.

Products I used.
Ann Butler's 1" faux quilt stamps by Unity Stamps
Ann Butler's 2" Diamonds & Plaid by Unity Stamps
Ann Butler's 2" Doily Picnic by Unity Stamps
Clearsnap Ann Butler Inks
Ann Butler Designs Iridescents™; Aquamarine from Earth Safe Finishes
Tiffany Windsor's Cool2Cast
painter's tape
stickles
wooden beads and Jewelry wire

What fun it was to use stamps with Cool2Cast and I might have just got carried away with the amount of castings I have made using both the products.

When I first started thinking about the project I knew that somehow I must have the stamp impression on my casted piece and after some thought I had my Aaahaa moment.

surrounded the Ann Butler's 2" Diamonds & Plaid by Unity Stamps with painters tape facing the design side up, make sure you press the painter's tape to stick to the edges of the stamp, the no edge design of these stamps is what works great for this technique and project.

Then mix the Cool2Cast as per the instructions on the package and pour into the stamp cast you just made. Tiffany also has some amazing detailed pre-cast pieces available.

After about 2 hours I pulled the tape out and separated my casted piece from the stamp. Separating the casted piece and stamp was a breeze.





Once I had achieved my impression the rest was just coloring the pieces and making them into wearable pieces of art.





Hope you enjoyed the project and be sure to stop by all the blogs and join the fun.
