a metal tag art pendant with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko

As you may know, for the month of June Altered Pages is teaming with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko to give you tons of summer time arty inspiration.  Today I have a metal art pendant to share with you, with lots of bits and pieces and fun little details:

It really almost glows, thanks to the beautiful StazOn Inks.  For this piece, I layered the Cactus Green with the Emerald Green using Ink Blushers sponges, then a layer of the GlazOn (wonderful stuff;  it prevents the stamped inks from smearing, unless of course you're like me, and too impatient to wait for anything to dry!).  Next is a layer or two of background stamping, plus a main image for each metal charm/tag--all with a thin coat of the GlazOn between each color of StazOn, a little ink around the edges for good measure, and a spritzing of Goosebumps Texture Spray for some extra shine and dimension: 
Had to add one of the Transit Tokens!
Behind each metal charm is a slightly larger charm, punched from a sheet of the amazing, prism-y Vertigo film.  If you missed Roni's post, you can see more Vertigo styles HERE.

The teeny-tiny metal locket features an image transfer, made using IMAGINE craft/Tsukineko Creative Medium and an image from the Altered Pages Itty Bitties Children page.  
You can see I used one another of my AP go-to items--the lightbulb safety pin--to attach the locket.

 Thank you IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko!

Be sure to check out the selection of art stamps at Altered Pages--one of my personal favorites is the French Postmark.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
