not quite venice

hi everyone

i saw this project in last months craft stamper and really liked it, so i thought i would have a go.

i won some of the new clay on from a magazine freebie and i was wandering what to make with it. i love the project in the magazine.
i also like going up tall towers like the campanile ( i have been to venice but didn't get time to go up, but i did go up the one in florence). My tile wasn't as big as the one in the book but i am quite pleased with it . i am going to hang it in my craft room.
the clay has ben stamped wih various rubber stamps, some whole and some just part of the stamp. i used several colours of perfect pearls on the clay before and after cooking, it has given it a lovely sheen. i also painted on glossy accents to protect the surface of the tiles. finally after cookong i glued on 3 gems just to add a bit of bling.
a bit of sparkle is almost as importan t as chocolate!

one of the tiles has the word beleive pressed into it : beleive, you can do anything if you want to enough!,
