Altered Hand Trinket Shrine Pendant

I am currently possessed by the projects with Hands from Retro Cafe Art.
This is the Hand Trinket Shrine made into a Pendant or Necklace.
I basecoat it with Snowflake Fresco Paint and then add various colors to the edges.
The rest is done with Sharpie Permanent Markers....Doodles, and Doodles + Color.
The Steampunk Lady in the background is from a Collage Sheet...Gear Head Steampunk by Debrina Pratt HERE.
I absolutely LOVE this sheet!

I had a Vintage Ball Chain and a Clock Face that I glued into the center.
The Flower on top is a Mini Fairy Bloom I accidentally broke somehow, but it worked great with a Silver Nail Head.
The Ball Chain fits easily into the channel made from the 3 layers of the hand.
Click HERE to see a better picture of how the chain fits through.
This is the Back that's painted with Blood Orange, Lilac, Eggplant, and London Bus Fresco Paints.
I stamped the Ink and the Dog Mini 59 from PaperArtsy (Watch Collage) on the back with Jet Black Archival Ink.
The Frantic Stamper carries the Fresco Paints and PaperArtsy Stamps now!
So check out the links, let me know if you have any comments or questions, and I'll be back hopefully soon with my Steampunk Collage using lots and lots of ephemera!
Come on Mailman.....deliver the goods!!!

Totally love this. Both the back and front are fabulous. It would be ever-so-cool if the watch actually worked too.
