Smeared ink

After my last few 'projects' i was missing Mr Poe, so I have used POE from the QUOTE THE RAVEN set...stamped with stazon onto shrink plastic, i coloured and cut out my image, then shrunk it. I used a hammered metal disc, placed Mr poe on it and sealed with diamond glaze.
I made a wispy lace flower and stuck my Poe disk to it, i used a 'handmade' brooch backing, made up some gem- drops and attached those.... then added my Poe flower.

These corsage brooches are about 3" plus whatever danglies they have..... and look pretty good when worn on a plain black outfit...... just as well considering all my outfits are black!!!

I'd like to enter the following challenges GIRLY GIRL... a fella wouldnt want it! ANYTHING GOES FOR THE GIRLS ..... like i said before, a fella wouldnt want it! EPHEMERA ..... not really sure if this fits by the dictionary ..... STAMPS ON SOMETHING OTHER THAN CARD/PAPER. ...............i stamped on shrink plastic. ANYTHING GOES GOTHIC ................ Mr Poe is one of the greatest gothic horror writers.... and this brooch is GOTHIC. FAVOURITE ...... I used a stamp of my favourite writer, making jewelry is a favourite of mine, black is my favourite colour.... love black gems.... METAL .... Mr Poe is surrounded by a hammered metal ring. MAKE YOUR OWN EMBELLISHMENT ..... really this is just a large embellishment!

Thanks for being here... love lynx
