This pendant is created from an altered poker chip. I picked up a bag of mixed poker chips at the thrift store and could not wait to alter them. The chip is colored with alcohol inks, gesso and water color crayons. The pixie design is from Artchix (hats in bloom collage sheet). The design is attached with mod podge. The finished piece is sealed to protect the image and set the ink. The pendant is embellished with ink dyed flowers and a mini green gem.

This is cool, I love all the colors you used!
Did you prime the chip first?

I did not prime the chip for this pendant. I directly pounced on ink. The paint in the center under the design is gesso. You do have to add a sealant (I used varnish) to set the inks.
