I love the colored green cork...what was used to make it green?  I would love to do this swap next round...I love the different styles of corks, but the pieces that look like air balloons are a favorite!

Beautiful corks everyone. So delicate and corky at the same time. I wanted to join, but the timing was off, so now I can wait for the next round. In the meantime, I am drinking wine just for the corks!

The bead work and embellishments are fantastic and so different.

I have receivedand my partner has no reason to have swap anxiety they are wonderful!

Whew -- so glad you like them!

I love the colored green cork...what was used to make it green?

Am guessing you're referring to the second cork, the one with the wings?  It does look a little greenish in the picture, but that's a trick of lighting or perhaps faemystique did a little photo editing for effect (is that how you got that nice vignetting, fae?).  I did apply a few coats of a pearl finish craft paint, so it's not bare cork, but the translucent finish is a softly pearlized white tone.

And kudos to faemystique for organizing her first swap!

I have to apologize for the delay. I only have my camera phone with me, and am having tons of issues with my laptop and keys sticking.


I received not 3 but 4 corks from Cindibee. They are all marvelous. She sent my favorite the mockinjay cork.





Check out the zipper vibe and rock and roll corks






And of course the rainbow that yells me.



These were all wrapped up in these great fabric quarters, so I think it's time to use them for some dottees. The ephemara was so nice and I love that AIW card. I will cherish that card. You are so sweet.









Thank you so much Cindibee. I love them all and know exactly where they are going to hang when I get home.

I'm so glad you love your corks!

I LOVE rainbows too, so the rainbow cork was my favorite to make.

The best part about this swap was that I had 99% of the stuff I used already in my stash. Even the guitars, drum set, and rainbow charms, as well as the mockingjays. I think the only thing I bought was the pink skull bead and the black Rock charm.

I received my lovely corks from gala_apples yesterday! It was a much needed bright spot, as my Monday started out with my check engine light coming on when I got half way to work, and after a weekend of food poisoning or some other nasty gastrointestinal plague.  Angry


I received three lovely corks! Up first is my absolute favorite of the bunch - I love the vibrant purple and the cool little crown!


Up next we have another steampunky cork - I like this one as it look like she (yes, it's a she) is wearing a little skirt!  Cheesy


And last but certainly not least, this little vintage-inspired beauty. Those sweet little bows just kill me! And the little ribbon trim makes me think of my Ukrainian mother-in-law's little knick-knacks around the house.


This was a super challenging swap for me - despite the small size! I would love to do it again, just to challenge myself! I hope gala_apples receives her package safe and sound - and I hope the corks are up to standards  Wink

Hope you're all better now Kimmy. Those corks are pretty and great use of fabrics to make them look steampunk.  Smiley
