Cat's Meow Necklace

I made this tile pendant with a free image from the Fripparies and Butterflies site. If you like to collect vintage photographs, check out the six beautiful images that are free for the taking. There is also a challenge going on if you would like to win more Gecko Galz prizes.

This is the first time I used the shipping tape transfer technique. It took me two tries to get it right. The first one I rubbed off too much of the paper. It is a delicate balance. I glued the image onto a home improvement tile with Mod Podge dimensional glue. I didn't notice until it was dry but it did smear the ink slightly (I have an inkjet printer). But I liked how it looked anyway. The pendant is embellished with three iridescent sequins.

I am entering this pendant in the following challenges:

GG Cat's Meow Challenge - use an image
Divas by Design - #68 make it girly
Cute Card Thursday - #252 diamonds are forever (sparkle)
Crafty Catz - anything but a card
