'Kissing Cousins' - Gingersnap Creations

Hi, Gingersnaps have a challenge called 'Gal Pals' based on the September Friendship theme,  so I created 'Kissing Cousins' an Altered Silver Coaster just to see if I could, so really its a personal challenge.

Products used: Gesso, Paste, Metallic Rub On, Inka Gold, various beads and Varnish.  The picture was Googled.

Thought you might like to see it before it was altered.

Am not sure whether to make it into a hanging or a magnet yet, but either way it will hopefully make a nice present for someone.  Hope you have had a smashing weekend and you have a great week.  Thank you for popping in and will be visiting you all shortly.  Hugs Annette x
