Octopode Sun Catcher

A little hanging sun catcher using octopode's Glinda and some of her Oz Friends. This is the remake of what my cat laid on in the previous post. It is a glass shape that has been stamped and then viva Croco applied over the top of the image. the viva reacts with the alcohol inks and give quite a cool stained glass effect as it splits all the alcohol ink up. I have run a line of solder round the edge of it. I also soldered jump rings to the bottom edge so I could hang Tim Holtz fragments with the Tin man, Lion and Scarecrow images on them.
It now hangs in my window and looks pretty.
