LEDscribe

The scribe in the light with the LED's lit

The Scribe in the Dark with the LED's lit


Mine for the This Thursday Challenge this week. This is an LED Scribe Display which is basically an acrylic block which is mounted on an acrylic base with an Led coloured light behind it to illuminate.
I stamped the image on one side of the block then coloured the other side with alcohol inks. The base was covered with Gold Leaf to hide the battery. Then the whole thing was glued together with hot glue. After embossing the edge, beads and gems were added for decoration and interest. Finally a twisted wire with beads was added to the top and sides to finish it off.
The mermaid image used is one of my favourites at the moment and is by Thirdcoast

The LED scribe block I used for this was an idea conjured up by a friend of my daughters. He has started to market these on a very small scale to see how things go. If any one is interested in having a look at his web site for this product this is the link http://www.ledscribe.net/.
The one above, which is shown on his site is the Red LED, but I can assure you that the other colours he offers are just as stunning once finished, so think ahead as to which colour inks you will using before ordering, as I was just lucky that I got a red one as I gave this no thought at all. LOL.

This is breathtakingly stunning - I can just imagine how rich this looks when lit up in a dark room.

What a stunning and original present this would make - but if I made one as perfect as yours I wouldn't ever part with it.
