Its Crafting Time DT Challenge - Red, Pink and White

Fimo Fancies -

I found this idea in an old book by Leonie Pujol on ATC's. She had an example in an Oriental style using black Fimo and stamping in to it with silver VersaFine.
I have done mine in red Fimo. I rolled it out thinly into a rough square. I then inked up a music background stamp with silver VersaFine, cut it into rough squares and rectangles using a knife.

The next job was to link the squares together with twisted pieces of silver wire. The free ends of the wire I covered by forming tiny balls of Fimo.

Whilst the Fimo was baking, I inked up the ATC blanks with Memento Lady Bug, stamped across all 3 stamps with the music background stamp in silver and then pinched the tiny butterfly stamp from my sister to finish...
(we then went out for lunch - oh, and a glass of wine...)
The crowns came from stash at 'Its Crafting Time' and I have just coloured them up with Lady Bug and silver. The final additions are the pink and white ribbon and the little sticky gems in red, white and pink.
A bit of an experiment but it worked!
