Small scale creativity - Neil

Altered bottle cap is what Neil has made for you today and turned it into a fridge magnet. Although he says that this was a challenge for him, I think he did amazing as I really love his sample. What do you think? 
He used one of the Bottle Cap embellishments as well as one of the latest Prima stamps.

I made a magnet using a bottle cap. 
Working small is always a challenge for me; I've never been that great at the "Less is More" but when space is tight you really have to keep it simple.

I coloured the cap with alcohol ink to give it some colour. I used a pokey tool to punch a hole in the cap and attached a jump ring to it.
I used the cameo from the new Prima stamp and stamped it onto clear shrink plastic in black stazon and heated. I love how tiny it is! I popped it into the cap and flooded it with glossy accents.

I'd made some flowers a while ago using Tim's Tattered garland strip die, and there were a couple of tiny ones spare so I added them to the cap while the glaze was still wet so I could move the elements around to get the position right.
I left it overnight to dry and then added lace around the edge to soften it, used a dab of liquid pearls to the flower centres and stuck a magnet to the back (Though I think it would also make a pretty brooch too?)
Lastly I added a chain tassel to the jump ring for interest.
