I designed this locket for Joanna Sheen. I am really pleased with how real it looks once die cut. I cut it from an old pie foil pie dish., I then dry embossed it a bit more to highlight the pattern with an embossing tool on a soft mat and then brushed some black gesso over the whole locket leaving it to dry for a few minutes before rubbing most of it off, leaving the black in the pattern to look like old silver. I domed the locket front a little bit and also stuck the front onto another die cut from card for extra stability.
I used the Signature Josephine Lace die on each side and the Favourite Lace Apeture Signature die in the middle. The lovely Rose background paper is from the beautiful Joanna Sheen Jane Shasky Heart of the Garden CD Rom
I added a piece of vellum over the background paper to create a softer look. The bows are cut from the Signature Ribbons and Bows border
