CCC Week 17 - Fragment Charms & Simon Says Stamp and Show some metal

Cutting it close this week!!! I wanted to do something new, but it didn't happen, so I am going to share a project I made to memorialize our Lover Boy, who died on Christmas 2009 from a snake bite. I still miss him so much, he was around 18 years old and was my baby. Anyways, here it is...

This is my entry into the Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities Week 17 Challenge. This weeks challenge is all about T!ms Fragment Charms and using his technique found on page 64.

I used a number of his charms covering them with coordinating paper and stamping on them
with stazon inks in black.

Used the grungeboard heart and wings covered in crackle paints and
then inked with vintage photo DI.

Anyways, here it is, I am going to be using it as a wall decoration. None of the papers or other items are named because they are all from my stash of weird stuff lol....

This is also my entry into the Simon Says Stamp & Show Some Metal challenge. Not too often I can get in two fer one lol...there are a few metal pieces on there, a key and heart, and a fish bones charm and some butterflies as well as the clip holding Love!

thanks for looking!

Wonderful tribute. We lost the cat we shared with his owner a month ago and the missing part is hard.

Yelowflower, your tribute to Lover Boy is absolutely wonderful! I'm so sorry you lost your friend. What a beautiful kitty!

You did a gorgeous job on this sweet memorial. The fragment charms are used so well. I love that you spelled out his name, and that little crowned kitty postage stamp is darling! Great background papers, too.

From one cat person to another: This is exceptional!
