So I say.........
........... thankyou for the Inspiration........ Tim Holtz, whos creativeness has inpired me beyond belief :D This is a necklace I have made from grungeboard shapes for this weeks Simon says stamp and show challenge :D
I painted the grunge with a gold metallic acrylic paint to begin with, then stamped the wings with a Basic Grey stamp in black arcgival ink
I tinted the images with promarkers then coated the whole thing with Claudine Hellmuths matte medium.
When dry I gave them a light brush with pearl coloured perfect pearls.
I inked the heart with salmon pink and ginger alcohol ink, then stamped a prima stamp in a brown promarker then with black archival ink, then coated in Ranger sepia accents.I added some prima lace to the heart then punched holes to add the charms and other embellies - mostly from cheap jewellery.
I coated a grungeboard keyhole in a thick coat of bronze croco paint and blasted with my heat gun, then highlighted the texture with Viva decor inka gold, added some brads and used the glossy accents to glue on to the heart.
The crown is a Melissa Frances applique which I highlighted with the inka gold then dropped on some ginger alcohol ink and left to dry.
I then attached it to the heart with glossy accents.I punched a hole on both wings and set eyelets, then threaded through some vintage lace.
And Voila, one very Tim-esque choker/necklace :D
Heres a few close ups :D
