Give 'em an inch, they take a trinch!

This weeks challenge on Mixed Media Monday was to make a "trinchie" - a 3x3 inch piece of art. Not something I'd tried before, so I thought I'd give it a go!

The stamps were from Prima's music themed clear stamp set, inks were distress, versafine and stazon. Buttons were fixed down with glossy accents and the extra large pewter eyelet is from Stampin' Up. The crown was stamped and then over-painted with gold acrylic, before being stamped again in the same position with black stazon. The brass screw and nut was courtesy of B&Q (that's a bit like Home Depot, to those of you "across the pond").

I hope you like it, click on the image for a larger view :)
