Visible Image Friday: Make an old key chain a piece of art

Hello, my dear VISIBLE IMAGE friends!
Today is Friday and this is my second post for February. All of us have those old and  big key chains we got from somewhere and mine was from Morocco.  So I decided to make it " my own" and to recycle it to a piece of art. With a little help of Tim Holtz pocket watch (3 years in the box) and a bunch of Visible Image stamps, some shrink plastic,  black and white pigmented ink and a lot of attempts- here is my final result.

I used  Visible Image Pocket watch (medium size stamp) from Time After Time set, stamped over white cardstock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then trimmed to the metal piece size.
 Them I stamped the Medium Rose from Immortal Love set over milky shrink plastic, hand cut around and  shrinked to the final size that was just perfect fit inside the pocket watch. I made a second rose and then added this Love title from the same set, stamped with white pigmented ink over the black shrink plastic and added near my roses. That's was all. The is no place to add more trinkets inside and I decided  to leave the outer side without any embellishments as I really want to use it. I changed the watch color a bit with alcohol ink (it was silver and my original chain was brass color), added a tassel and connectors and this piece was finished to use.

Just think about the endless possibilities to use Visible Image big stamps with shrink plastic to make charms (don't forget about a hole before you shrink the  stamped piece), to make your own plastic embellishments, to color it before and after shrinking etc.

Hope you will try this fun technique too.
