I saw this post on Little Birdie Secrets which showed how you could embed a printed image in a ring blank with resin. I had come across these brooch backs which I'd had for ages, so long in fact that some of them had little cross stitch pictures in them :o
I used a round punch to cut a circle then inked up with Distress Inks in Red Lipstick & Peeled Paint, stamped a design from a Tanda oriental stamp in Silver Brilliance. I stuck it in the brooch blank with glossy accents then more GA round the edge and embedded some silvery beads in it, filled in the middle with more GA and left it to dry overnight. There were a couple of bubbles in the GA so it's not perfect, but I'm thinking that I may have another go with a collage style print.
If you have alcohol inks they would work well for colouring the metal brooch setting.
All in all I had a great time making this, it's not for anyone, it's not a challenge, it was pure indulgence!
