Pink Ladies Dart Pin

Good morning, Brenda here and welcome to my first post for Sakura.  I'm so excited to be here and share the wonderful products that Sakura has.  Visit Sakura Hobby Craft for your 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul's Mixers at USE THE COUPON CODE TO GET YOUR TERRI SPROUL MIXERS TODAY!  The Coupon code to get 20% off is "SHIMMER03".  Hurry and get yours today.

Now I want to show you what beautiful color you get.  I am very passionate about a lot of things, but the one thing that is near and dear to my heart right now is a dart league that I am playing in to support cancer.  It's an all women's league.  All the money that we raise goes to fighting cancer.  We are doing fund raisers, auctions and even side pledges.  I decided to make myself a pin recognizing this league.

I started with some paperclay and used a ribbon cookie cutter to cut it out.
I sanded the edges with an emery board and got into all those tiny areas. 
Then I painted it with the Shimmer Pink Sapphire and 3d crystal lacquer.  This is the most beautiful paint ever.  Also when using the 3d crystal lacquer you get a nice seal over the top of your project. 
Then I molded 3 darts using an existing dart earring I had 
I painted each dart gold 
Of course I own a dart board stamp and stamped 
that image onto some white cardstock. 
Then I adhered the darts and the dartboard onto the ribbon again 
using 3d crystal lacquer because it bonds very well 
and then I also layered some more 3d crystal lacquer 
over the top of the dartboard and it gives it a glass like look. 
Really honestly, the pictures do it no justice.  
I wish I had a better way of showing you how beautiful this pin turned out. 
I put a pin back onto my ribbon and it hangs proudly on my dart case.

I want to thank you for coming over and checking out my first post for Sakura.  You can find me here to check out my other projects.  I'll be showcasing Sakura products all month long.  Don't forget to head over to Sakura for a 20% off of the shimmers.  They are exquisite...
