Still Life as Jewelry

About this design:

This is a hand-painted (yes, by me so don't be too hard on me LOL) Vintaj brass blank. I used the Patinas, because it just seemed that it would work. Why just dab them on when I could make a pretty bouquet?

I sold this right away at my craft show this past weekend. (7/14/12)

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very nice!! I just ordered the alcohol inks. Do you work with those, too, or stick with the patinas?
