Ribbon Key


This is going to be one of my bits for the charity auction on Lotstodo forum. It's an old rusty key which Hilda kindly sent to me. I have glued and tied ribbons and fibres through the hole at the top using a cream and brown colour scheme, added a metal button which I've coloured with latte and caramel alcohol inks and finished off by tying a piece of rough string around the opposite end. It didn't look like this to start with, but thanks to the advise of a forum friend (LazyKay), I got there in the end and am now quite happy with the result

Looks gorgeous - very rustic and rusty. I would never have thought of using this item like this - good inspiration.
