These Altered Paperclip Tutorial Using Gel Prints and Stamps are super fun and easy to make. Gel prints are perfect for this as they usually have lots of pretty colors.
Begin by selecting a cardstock base, can be ATC size, mine were 2.75 x 3.75 as that was just what was on my desk. Trim a gel print to the same size as the cardstock base.
Ink up background stamp, Damask Collage with Brilliance Black Graphite ink and stamp on gel print. Stamp Shabby Stitches image on left side. Adhere to cardstock base and apply black soot distress ink around the edges.
Trim a piece of cheesecloth to about 2 x 3 inches. Spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, dry with heat tool.
Select one of the Bible Verse domino images from the Calico Collage digital sheet and trim. Apply black soot distress ink around the edges. Choose another gel print and tear into to a piece that is slightly larger than the domino image. Adhere these together, domino image on top of gel print.
Apply a small amount of glue in the center of the gel print/cardstock base, layer cheesecloth on top. Cut a piece of eyelash yarn and lay on top of cheesecloth. Adhere gel print/domino image on top of cheesecloth and eyelash trim. Allow drying.
Place a paperclip on second cardstock base, apply glue around paperclip and the whole piece of cardstock. Sandwich the paperclip between the two pieces of cardstock. Press well and allow to dry.
