Beauty and the Beast Sparkling Black Rose Lamp

Hey everyone, I hope you are well. I am here to share a personalised version of the rose in the Beauty in the Beast. (To represent my username sparklingblackrose!) I found a gorgeous velvety rose on etsy, a small bell jar, some silver wire leds with a remote and I got out my mica pigment from my stash.

I drilled a hole into the bottom of the base to make sure the flower stood up unsupported. I then cut away any leaves on the stem which were too wide for the jar. I got out my black mica pigments and painted them onto the edges of the flower petals and let them dry.
I then arranged the lights on the base and around the flower, lastly attaching the end of the lights to the top of the jar with a tiny bit of white tack.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Come and Get it Challenges: Anything Goes
Glitter n Sparkle: Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes
Artistic Inspiration: Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart: Anything Goes
Allsorts: Anything but a card

Thank …

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…
