Wedding Charm



My quilt artist friend, Jude, is marrying this weekend. I made her this collage charm to go on a bottle of wine and she can wear it later or use it on another bottle of wine or hang it on a Christmas tree if she chooses. It is 1 1/2 x 1 1/2"
The background is alcohol ink on photo paper which tends to do odd things. I cut the word on the front "love perfectly" out of patterned paper. The heart is punched from another patterned paper. The back is a quote cut from patterned paper that reads " has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, it's all about what you are expected to give.. which is everything." I added the heart to start out the quote as "Love". I soldered it and added two jump rings. I forgot how much I like to solder.
