ArtfulINKables Saturday

Well, we made it through another week! This Saturday, I have another altered project for you featuring an ArtfulINKables image...the moon from the newly released Celestial Bodies set!

I apologize for the not so great photos but as you know some altered items are hard to get a good shot of!

I found these decorative plant stakes at Target (recently - unlike most of my altered items, I chose to use this one right away!!!) and if you hurry you might still be able to grab some from the dollar spot.

Here is a front shot...

and an inside, non-glare shot!

The stake comes with an empty center section so I decided to cut a piece of thick acetate like you would get in an embellishment package. I used my Creative Memories cutting system to cut the circle to the closest size. I then stamped the moon with black stazon ink, let it sit for a few minutes to make sure it was completely dry and then applied a layer of crystal effects within the outline of the image. After applying the CE, I covered it with gold, blue and green very fine glitter.

Here is a shot of the back...

Once I knew it was dry (a few hours later to be safe), I punched a hole in the top of the circle and added a very small jump ring for it to hang from. I could have added another ring on the bottom but I thought the swinging circle might be kind of neat!

A simple project...something to liven up a house plant...or maybe a plant on your screened in porch. I can't vouch for how weather resistant the CE and glitter might be!

I hope this gives you some inspiration to dig into your alterable stash!!

Thanks for stopping by...don't forget to check out my DRS Blog post tomorrow!
