Anything But a Card challenge #48 Faux Glass leaf bracelet

Welcome to another post for Anything but a Card.  This month's challenge #48 is all about the OUTDOORS.  I so love creating for this blog, but sometimes time gets away from me.  I am here today to show you something I created a LONG time ago for another design team I am on.  I've been with Amazing Casting Products for 3 years now and love using all the products they have.  If you haven't heard about it, go HERE and see all the great things this group of designers have made.  I love creating jewelry and today's post is all about taking Out and About with you!


First start by mixing your Alumilite Violet Dye to part "A" of the Amazing Clear Cast Resin. Make sure to mix it up well and then mix that with your part "B" of the Amazing Clear Cast Resin again, stirring well to get it all mixed together well.


Then I used a piece of packing foam (recycled) as my sponge and "painted" it onto the ribbon coating both sides on top of a garbage bag. Leave your ribbon on the garbage bag to dry and it will just lift right off when it has dried. Once it's dry it becomes hard but yet still pliable. 


I made a leaf using the Amazing Clear Cast Resin with Alumilite (Flo) Green Dye. Doesn't it look like glass? I used a brown sharpie to add the veins on the leaf and then "painted" another coat of Amazing Clear Cast Resin over the top of that to shine up the "sharpie".


I attached the leaf with some E6000® and there I have an amazing fall bracelet. 


I also used my Crop-A-Dile™ to attach some eyelets to the "ribbon" and added a clasp.


I hope I've inspired you to make something for Anything but a Card and can't wait to see what you come up with.  There are only 3 simple rules to participate in this challenge.

1.  Use the Outdoors as your inspiration.
2.  Make ANYTHING BUT A CARD
3.  Have Fun

Thanks for looking and see you soon!

  1. Brenda... Wow !!! You created such a pretty piece of jewelry with the resin. I haven't gotten any of this yet. I think I need to add this to my shopping list. Great idea to use the sharpie for the veins on the leaf... Beautiful !
