Fragment Charms

 This morning at Creative ART Camp 2011, we made charms out of Tim Holtz's fragments. You can see the basic technique from Tim here. I made mini collages under the fragments. For the backs, we colored foil flashing tape and adhesive backed foil sheets with alcohol inks, ran them through embossing folders and used sand paper to rub the ink off the raised surfaces.
The foil flashing tape has an adhesive on the back. Removed the backing, laid the fragments on top, cut to size and used sand paper to even out the edges. Don't these backs look stunning?
 On the front of the charms I've added rhinestones, raised sticker letters, and metal bits. Next is to add jump rings with beads and/or small coordinating charms. Fun project!!!
