Tim Holtz Technique Pendant

And now for something completely different...

L3's challenge this week is to use a technique Tim posted a while back.  In short, you ink up a non-porous surface with reinkers, futz around with it until you're happy, let it dry, stamp an image onto it with archival ink and then wipe it off immediately.  A chemical reaction causes the archival ink to also remove the reinker.  I have to say that it didn't go particularly well but in the end, I ended up with one piece that I can wear without embarassing myself... though I had to "erase" it 2x to get to this point.
Ink: (Pesto, Stonewashed Alcohol Reinkers) Adirondack, (Perfect Picture Black) Inkadinkado
Stamp: (Etruscan) Stampin' Up
Misc: (Fragment) Tim Holtz, (Crystal Effects) Stampin' Up, Photo Paper, Jewelry Findings

 Here's another that didn't turn out so well but I saved it since it was still one of my better attempts:
