ABAA - Bottle Cap

I had so much fun making the pendant a couple of weeks ago, that I decided to revisit it!  I used a bottlecap I had, and squished it in my Sizzix.  Then I used some memory wire and wrapped the marble and added the little bird.  

I must admit that this is where I ran into some technical difficulties (read: impatience!):  I had already adhered the paper to the front, and filled it in with some diamond glaze.  I even let it sit for a few hours. 

But that's when my patience ran out. 

So I turned the cap over to adhere the wire, and set it under the lights to dry.  Of course the Diamond Glaze was dry to the touch, but when upside down under the lights on top of a crayon box.... not so much.  When I picked it up the glaze stuck to the box, and ripped the paper as I pulled it away.  

So take two is what you see above!  I remade the paper portion, using rub-ons and some glitter and a bitty flower. 

Stick a feather in it... and call it done!

This is great - and I'm sure Mark II is even better than Mark 1! Very creative use of the bottlecap, and thanks for joining in our challenge.
