An Art Pin

Oh man this was sooooo much fun to create :)
as mentioned in an earlier post I recently purchased some Super Sculpey. Well I've been busting to use my stamps with it, and this is just my MOST favourite stamp at the moment!
it's one of the Gorgeous stamps from the Darkroom Door Stamp DDRS027 Artist set
Barb has got this gorgeous stamp at
Seriously this particular type of sculpey is amazing to work with, it's soft and imprints beautifully as you can see in this photo.
I inked my stamp with Versa Fine Onyx Black Inkpad, and stamped it into a piece of rolled out sculpey, trimmed it and baked the scupley as per the instructions.
then I brushed Gesso over it and wiped it off with a damp rag (I did this about 5 times till I got it just how I wanted it to look)
Next I drilled a hole - I told you this stuff is amazing, you can drill in it without it cracking or splitting (I was careful ofcourse) and attached the old key at the bottom.
The letter G at the top is a Rusty Pickle Alpha Brad, I simply trimmed the back of the brad off with my old scissors and glued it on.
And there you have it!

Thanks for looking everyone :)
I hope you are all having a great week!
