Artful Times Challenge 12

Neet has the reins for the next two weeks at Artful Tmes with her theme of inchies they may be small but you can think as BIG as you like, just use more of them lol
I have made a bag charm/keyring, I cut 2 inchies out of mount board and covered the surface with egg shells then coloured with alcohol inks, after sticking the 2 together I made the hole with a crop a dile and coated with glossy accents
Come and join us and we will be only to pleased to visit you and if you have followed the rules you could be in with a chance to win a £10 voucher from Oyster Stamps

Aha, egg shells. I wondered what you had done and I thought it was maybe Stampbord. What a great idea - what about a tute on it?
Hugs, Neet xx

What a fab idea Von. Love the crackle effect of the eggshells and vibrant colours.
Thanks for your kind words on my new DT position, I really appreciate it. It all came totally out of the blue when I was on holiday. I can only think our visit to the Craft Barn was the start of it all though.
Have a great weekend.

What a brilliant idea to use egg shells! Thrifty, recycled (or is it upcycled?)and very effective.
