pink light bulb

Happy Friday everyone!

I had a 'light bulb' moment yesterday....

I was looking at my projects from Eileen Godwin's workshop,
and found that I had the beginnings of a 'kill two birds with one stone'.
Who ever thought of that saying?!

I needed to finish off,  ie mount my light bulb, stencilled in pink,
covered in wink of stella, and outlined in gold.

I also wanted to try and stamp with some pink mica powder and some
luminarte-in-a-little-jar stuff that you mix with water.
I got a lovely shimmery effect for the background,
but alas my photography skills are lacking.....

I quite liked how the added gold twine looks a bit electric!
Obviously had to mount it on Melon Mambo!
Black has become a fave mount too thanks to Eileen and Sarn.

So, at the same time it fulfills an agreement I had with
some pals, to enter a challenge called

 ******Pretty in Pink******


Job done!

Have a great weekend



  1. Your light-bulb moment was a great idea, but I actually prefer the little butterflies trapped in a bulb even better. Is your bulb a die-cut? The only one I have seen is by die´namics and it is not such an elegant shape. I have seen on pinterest that there is an American one but I can´t find it in UK and it is very expensive!! Kate x
