Pirate Earrings

Hey Bombshells!

I used my Bombshell Stamps this weekend to make some fun earrings. I love neon colors (and can you believe neon colors are actually "in" again!?) and since I had some neon colored paint on hand, I thought let's use them!

The neon blue is kind of dark. Not really the neon hue I was going for, but I love the way these earrings came out anyway.

First I drilled holes on the top of some round wooden disks and coated them with a paint of Gesso primer. Once that was dry, I painted a few coats of neon acrylic paint. Then I stamped the Pirate Skull and Ship Stamps onto the painted disks using Staz-On ink. After that was dry, I applied a coat of acrylic sealer and waited for it to dry so I could assemble them into earrings.

If you have any questions please ask below!
Have a fantastic day!
