Summer Design challenge!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay!!! I can finally reveal my entry. It isn't a card and it isn't a scrapbook page in fact it has very little stamping on but I love how it turned out, and I am already making more. Is a fully wearable necklace made from punched out circles. I used nearly all the circles punches, starting with the 1 3/8" then moving outwards the 1 1/4", then is the 1" then the 3/4". And how I love those colours I tell you I had real trouble sending this in to SU. I have used the following colours

Basic Black, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Orchid Opulence, Almost amethyst, tempting Turquoise, Green Galore and Certainly Celery those two colours were alternated for a brighter green but not quite as bright as green galore on is own. I have simply threaded the discs onto necklace thread and separated the different section with clear crystals from the Pretties kit. Elegant ribbon finishes it off. Here's another view complete with the display stand I made.


It really was quick and easy to make apart from maybe a little taxing on my hands, and i have completed it in 2.5 hours on a lap tray in car while travelling down to London. ***NO I WASN'T DRIVING SILLY ***

So I hope you will love this as much as I do and I have a little game for you to play. Guess how many circles I used for this entire neck piece? The FIRST person to get it right will receive a little prize from me, I might even make a smaller version of this necklace for them. Good Luck !!Hugs Monica xxx

Jo said...

This is stunning!

I am going to take a guess at about 175 circles! The cardstock is quite thick and fabby quality, so i dont think it is a *REALLY* high number . . . . . . . i could be wrong! lol!

Rustyhammer said...

492 is my guess. Looks fab Monica! Would look really good in felt - you wouldn't need quite so many circles either! Though I'm not so sure it would cut easily. Love the stand too. Good luck with your entry.

Dale said...

I really haven't a clue but one thing I do know is that is a lot of punching.
So I will take a wild guess at 560.
I think Shelli is going to be really impressed Monica.
