Objet D'art Challenge

Jennie from Artistic Stamper has started a new challenge blog.
The first challenge is to make a piece of art from something from the kitchen.
Jennie herself has made a fab angel, the link to the blog is listed in my blog list.
I found a tea strainer that has been used just once (My Mum was visiting and had some weird chinese herbal tea).
I used my alcohol inks (messy fingers yet again).
The centre is card covered with a piece of fabric from my stash (leftover from a one of the skirts I made during the summer hols).
I've just beads, stone and ribbon from my stash, the lacy looking thing in the centre is actually a dolls house doily (My Mum used to be into dolls houses and gave me some bits she had leftover, I have some mini plates, cutlery and candles too that will get used one day lol).
It looks better hanging up but my camera doesnt take a great picture.
Thanks for the challenge Jennie.
