Anything but Rectangle or Square

This is my entry in the Create byhand weekly challenge.
I was wanting to send a RAK and this fit the bill for the challenge as well.
I cut light chipboard with the Wizard using the dahlia and star nestibilities. cuttlebug embossed and put on lots of ranger metallic paint dabber and metallic rub on paste. I painted the center with twinkling h2o's, stamped with the quietfire flourish, then with the create without limits stamp and clear embossed that and then tried to hold back.
The RAK recipient is a digital friend and I don't know how much flash she would wear.
The backing is hand made royal purple felt, and the pin back can be used as a brooch or a necklace. There is some stickles glitter glue on it too.
I was glad to get this done with all the excitement of opening the Black Mountain Yarn Shop and another major snow storm and upcoming trip to Taos.


  1. What a fantastic brooch/pin! I think your internet friend will love it. So very gorgeous.

  2. This is lovely! Such a great challenge too!

  3. Lovely broach, your friend should be happy with it.


I love comments,constructive criticism, suggestions and RAK.
