Mixed Media Monday - Metal/Metallics

I'm hosting the challenge again this week on Mixed Media Monday, which is always fun! It gave me the opportunity to use another of these gorgeous Nichos that my son gave me for my birthday. This time I sponged the metal star with metallic psints (Luminere and Atel=lier), I added a computer generated image to the niche, along with a minature bottle with beads (including gold meallic), some cheese cloth (coffee dyed) and a string of pearls. I added a piece of metallic German scrap to the window as a finishing touch. This gorgeous little metallic Nicho stands about 18 cms or 7 inches tall.

How beautiful! If the Nicho is 7 inches tall, I am amazed that it is possible to find a such a tiny bottle - WITH BEADS! The whole effect is exquisite. I agree with Kersten that it would look fabulous on a Christmast tree - or maybe one for each guest with their image in the centre? Fantastic.
