Altered spoon challenge x

Hiya ladies , here is a challnge I entered over on Cardz n Scrapz  it was for an alterd spoon and stupid me made a wooden spoon first of all nad then realised it was for a metal spoon so another excuse to get the alcohol inks out ;) here are the 2 results x
 I am always looking for ways to photograph my ATC'S  and I love this idea x
 close up of the alcohol inks on the metal spoon x
 side view  , the wire wrap will have to be covered up with some more bling x
 it looks a bit wonky but honestly its just the angle of the photo ;) x
 this wooden version is for my kitchen and is so me black pink and bling x
 inside the frame it says " stir with love "
thanks so much for stopping by and hope you liked my shard projects
