Nouveau Dreaming

I've been saving a particularly gorgeous art nouveau brass medallion for about six months now, waiting for the perfect combination of materials to make the very most of this little treasure. Well, it all came together this week and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with the result! The playing card suited the medallion perfectly; it's such a great feeling when a card just works LOL

Stamp - PSX
Paper/card - K&Company, Bazzill
Embellishments - Kasiercraft rhinestones, Kaisercraft pearls, decorative playing card, art nouveau brass medallion, gold wire

Keys

I had the best time making this keyring! I started with a faux optical lens and clip art from The Stamping Queen and built it up with lots of sparkly little treasures from my collection of found objects. Funnily enough, I think my favourite part of the keyring is the back! Love those old bread tokens. It fit the lens perfectly!

Embellishments - Designs Galore clip art, faux optical lens, Making Memories eyelet letter, vintage bread token, vintage jewellery findings, assorted charms
Other - key chain, jump rings, pliers
