Altered serving spoon pendant

I got this fabby serving spoon from a charity shop and bashed away atit to flatten it out - I had to get hubbys big hammer out for this one though - my little making memories one was just getting laughed at LOL :D

It then took me about a week to drill the holes with my little archemides drill ( I NEED a Dremel LOL) anda few blisters along the way :(

I used a vintage pic from Art creations Friday challenge blog printed on to canvas and then inked with TH distress inks.
I was going to use my metal punches again but it wasn't working well as the spoon was just too hard!!!

I added instead pieces of vintage music score and a dictionary definition - Dream that had also been inked.
Added lace, buttons, metal embellies, distress stickles, Sepia accents and glossy accents and dangley charms :D

This is a really large piece approx 5 !/4" fromthe top of the bale tothe bottom of the rose and 2 1/4" accross

And because its altered metal in can also enter it for this months Alter it challenge - Tin pan Ally :D
