Design Team Project for Ephemera's Vintage Garden-Number 2

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are having an amazing day wherever you are!  The sun is finally shining and it's gorgeous out.  Today I have my second project for Ephemera's Vintage Garden.  This was so incredibly fun to make and surprisingly, didn't take me that long.  I am using Coral Blues.  The set is called Scrapbook and Journal Card Set.   If you click here, you can check out the designs.  It is an add on to the Coral Blues Journal Kit.  As you can see, you can use this set for more than just paper crafts!

I used Tim Holtz Fragments and adhered the design paper to one side with Judikins Diamond Glaze.  You could use Glossy Accents as well, I just didn't have any in front of me at the time.
For this one below, I adhered the punched butterfly to the back first, and then I adhered it to the polka dot paper.
Once they were completely dried, I cut them out using scissors, and then I sanded the edges a little to clean it up.
Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain to ink around the edges of the paper to eliminate the white core showing.  Then I adhered more designer paper and Tim Holtz word stickers to each charm.  Again, I went around each one with Walnut Stain.  Once I was done with that, I put a layer of Diamond Glaze on top and let them dry for a few hours.
Here is the completed bracelet.

And here's the other side with the words...
I hope you enjoyed my project today and I hope that it inspired you to think outside the box!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have an amazing day!
Here is the video!
