Created By Hand Challenge 09-13-10

This week the challenge theme at Created Byhand was Sapphire since sapphire is the September birthstone (as well as a color). I focused on both aspects of the theme. The blue (or sapphire colored) background is from one of Tim Holtz's paper stacks, my favorite Shabby Chic. I stamped the large hand (Stamp Zia) with Adirondack peach bellini pigment ink and embossed it. I then cut it out and adhered it to the background. The sapphire ring is one of the Michael Strong hexagon stamps which was painted blue and covered with glossy accents, and then adhered with a dimensional pop-dot to the ring finger. The sentiment, from Club Scrap, is a bit hard to read on the scan, but is visible on the card. It says "Adorn your life with joy and wonder.
