Altered Bottle Cap

During the Papermaze crop a couple of weeks ago Karen (daisymay creates) gave us a bottle cap to alter for today's Bramford Crop.  Well I have to admit that I forgot all about it until yesterday and then had no idea where to start.  Once i looked at the item I initially thought that I'd make a keyring for my craft bag.

Obviously I wanted to use my Tim Holtz products as they are my favourites and started by creating the inside of the bottle cap using the Patchwork Texture Fade.  I added Antique Linen Distress Ink over the image and cut out the section that looks like a clock face.  Once in place I covered the base of the bottle cap with Glossy Accents and whilst wet dropped in some Craftynotions Stellar Flash to add a little sparkle.  Next I stamped a cinema ticket from my Tim Holtz stamp set, added that and finally attched the Game Spinners.  Whilst thinking about adding the Swivel Clasp I remembered that I had a small canvas which could make an art piece for my craft room instead of the keyring.  I used the same distress ink for the background and the Coffee Archival Ink to darken the edges.  Next I added the quote, the clock faces and the postmark to the background before applying Traveller Tissue Tape round the edges of the canvas.  Before attaching the bottle cap I created two wings, inked and covered with Distress Crackle.

Thanks for looking!
