Bronze hamsa

I did this Hamsa (Israeli " good luck" item) for my new and very exiting DT
This was a very fast item to do as I needed to do it after I was entered to DT to introduce myself
This group is mostly mixed media and stamping artists- so I was very thrilled to be a part of this great names DT .
As the " entry" we need to do some ginger color artwork and I decided to do a
Hamsa - the altered item we hang on the wall for good luck. We also add some home or other blessing on it usually- but this one is more for display and less for luck- so it's without the blesssing.
I used this acrylic shape from both sides of it.
The back is covered with very thick homemade paper I painted with bronze paint.On the front I stamped and heat embossed some butterflies from this great new set I won on Clearly inspired blog and then added some bronze Pearl ex powder all over.2 other butterflies are die cut and embossed from a foil- but as I only had silver foil I painted them as well and then accidently decided to dry with my heat gun.. Part of the paint melted and it gave them this funny and unsxpected look.
The sun shape was a curtain holder- I love to use all this recycled items on my work. The last touch was some blings, lace, yarn and a title made with very old ABC metal set- but usuful one.
But as always with me this one was done for some more web challenges
