Tilda & Co Challenge: Shiny Silver

I love the Tilda & Co challenge as it makes sure my little Tildas & Edwins get inked at least once a week and won't get neglected (well, I'll need to do a *few more* challenges before I'll get through them all :) )

O.K this weeks challenge is.....
Shiny Silver
This week's challenge i would like to see Shiny Silver, You be may wondering shiny silver?
Well it couldn't be simpler,
It could be some shiny mirror card in silver! or could be some metal work/wire, What about some little mirror tiles? or even sequins as long as there is some shiny Silver on your work,
Go on give your work that shine and show off your lovely Shiny silver with magnolia stamps.
Once again any form of work goes, be it a card, Scrapbook page, Altered art etc, Try & think outside the box!


Here is my entry, it's an Edwin bookclip . .
You might have to click on the photo and zoom in for a better look as he's so diddy. I happened to buy a box of giant paperclips today (they're about 7cm) and have been meaning to play with some shrink plastic for a while now (not done that in ages), so had a real Eureka moment when I read the challenge!
Here's a photo of the difference in sizes between stamped Edwin and after he's been shrunk . He's soo cute, might have to make him a few friends LOL

Materials:
* Image: Sitting Edwin & stack of books stamped twice behind him onto frosted shrink plastic. Coloured in with Prismas/Sansodor (wasn't sure if it worked on shrink plastic but was fine!) His Wings, star and bitsof books coloured with Sakura clear stardust pen so glitters IRL
* Others: This was then shrunk with my heatgun then just sandwiched the paperclip between him & a small circle chipboard piece(from my dovecraft masculine tin - perfect colour for it but not shown in photo) with silicone glue.
