Can you guess....

what this started life as????

Well, long before it was bashed with my hammer,drilled and inked it used to be a spoon!!!!
I have to tell you its very therapeutic bashing the life out of metal LOL :D

I stamped the word "HOPE" with my metal punches,inked it,stamped it, added some distress embossing powders and distress stickles, then gave it a couple of coats of utee :D
Added a few embellies and Bobs your uncle :D

Wish I had bought the other set of spoons from the carboot yesterday now LOL :D

I will certainly be stalking the charity shops now LOL

Hugs'n'shiney snogs,
