Two Chimes From One

Good evening everyone, are you enjoying the glorious weather we are having here in England!
I decided to give my windchimes a makeover.
I started with a metal one which had lost all but one chime and painted it with Gesso and Acrylic, used the purple bits from my other one which had lost all of its chimes.
I then stamped out 2 Tildas on to printable acetate and coloured with Copics.
 Ribbon from my own stash.
 Tildas stamped onto printable Acetate
