Cameo Necklace.

The challenge at Fun with Shapes this fortnight is to create a piece of 
jewelery using Stamps & Spellbinders Die-cuts.

I've used Large Scalloped and large ovals to create a three layered Cameo base with  cardboard from inside a boarded envelope and core'dinations white and black card. I stamped the Cameo image onto the smallest oval of the three then allowed the ink to dry before coating with pva and sprinkled with Frantage silver glass glitter. I then coated the whole of the front with Anita's 3D Gloss embossing liquid and sprinkled a little more glass glitter on top. after alowing this to dry completely I then repeated this for the back. When both sides were comepletely dry I punched a whole for the velvet ribbon with my Crop-a-dile and added a few Wild Orchid Crafts Rose's adhering with the embossing liquid.
