My Gingersnap Wings

I have wanted to do this for ages but most of you know the reason why I haven't!!
So when I saw the chestnut theme challenge over at Gingersnap Creations was Wings this month I got my *!$ in gear and made this!!
The badge is loosely based on my "Dance to the Music of Time" canvas that won me the CS Stamper of the Year title.....need to keep saying that :)
There is only one stamp on this and that is the T!m script on the wings (made from grungeboard...gesso applied and distress embossed).
.....The circular base is the metal bit you get on the top of a cava bottle cork (I've got loads waiting to be used.......already drunk the contents mind! Hick! LOL).
I fixed the badge pin to the top by punching holes with my Big Bite and securing with long fasteners.....added some chipboard cut to size and crackle painted adding black glitter to disguise the edges where the cutting out did not quite match the metal top! printed word fragments and DI inked with sepia accents on top....printed off a small version of my dancer by extracting it from a photo of the original canvas I made and added rock candy did react with the ink jet inks though and sort of blurred the it happens though I'm pleased with the look even if it was not the one I had intended!!
Serendipity strikes again!!! LOL
I thought that perhaps I would wear it if I go to a craft show and then you might recognise me and say hello (big waves) :)....but then again I like it so much I'll probably end up wearing it a lot LOL
You still have time to join in this challenge as it does not close till July 4th
....hey! Independence Day over in the USA.
Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
P.S. Just to get an idea of size it is about 9cm or 3 and a half inches across wing tip to wing tip. won't miss me wearing that will you?! :)
