Inky Minxy Metal!

Good Morning Stampers, How is everyone this miserable morning, ggeesh this cold dull and wet weather is really bringing a downer to the week.
Still on the bright side it gives me the excuse to stay inside and craft! Oh and watch Tim on QVC!
And what better way to try and kick start the old mojo back into life but by taking part in my favorite challenge
Compendium of Curiosities
This week the delightful Linda has chosen page 56
'Altered Metal Alcohol Inks'
And here is what i made...
I created a little pendant using a small piece of industrial metal which i inked with Expresso and Stonewashed AI's,
I used old book pages for my pages which i coated with matt accents, I also gave the metal a coat of matt accents to seal it.
The bird was actually coloured using my copics.. well there an alcohol pen right!
This is the back of the pendant, it came out really pretty shame it's the back really!
And the you have it.
Thanks for dropping by.. Sorry i've not had time to do much blog hopping lately, Hope to rectify that soon.
Have an Inky Day

Minxy, I am in love with your altered metal pendant! What a great design-- the metal looks amazing, and the little bird and book pages are so cleverly used. I've already borrowed one of your designs-- mind if I borrow this one to make myself some jewelry??

You are an incredible artist, my dear!
