Penny Bennington: Floriculture Charms

Happy 4th of July! These red, white and blue charms are made on 2x2 pieces of glass with the Floriculture bud using a Tim Holtz technique of inking the glass with alcohol ink, then stamping an image with archival ink and finally wiping away the ink which also takes away the alcohol ink leaving a clear image of your stamp. I sandwiched a white piece of cardstock between the inked glass and another plain piece of glass and then soldered the edges to make it into a charm. Don't look too closely - you'll see that my soldering skills need some more practice, but it was really fun to do!

Here's a close-up of one done using Stream, Denim and Meadow alcohol inks:

This one has Red Pepper and Raisin inks:

And the third one has Eggplant and Denim inks:


  1. They are totally gorgeous! I've tried that technique on Fragments but had forgotten you can use real glass. Love it!

  2. Fantastic charms, the background colours are so rich.

  3. These are fantastic! I love the effect.

  4. Great minds think alike-I've been playing with that technique also,I made mine on some of Tim's Fragments, making some charms for future cards. Yours' look wonderful.

  5. Very beautiful and a great example of how versatile these great stamps are.


Thanks for stopping by and telling us what you think!
