I had this broken windchime. Itwas perfectly good really - it just lost it's clapper or flapper or whatever that thing is that catches the wind and makes the thing chime.
So I made one.
It's from a tomato can lid.
Here's how I did it:
- I sanded the metal a little bit, just so it would take stamps and inking better than the coated surface would.
- Then I crimped the edge with my pliers and punched holes with my awl to give it some texture and disguise it's origins a little bit.
- Using Staz-on ink, I stamped a sun onto both sides.
- Then I dribbled 2 colors of alcohol inks all over it (magenta and yellow) and sprtzed it with alcohol to blend the colors.
Hey! Tea Tomorrow :)
C U then!
