Altered game pieces

Have woken up with a cold today, so am feeling rather sorry for myself. Over on DC the current altered art swap is for game pieces. I was not feeling too inspired, had the pieces sitting on my desk for weeks. When my sewing machine packed up the other day, I had to put my other project on hold so turned back these.

I am aiming to try for 3 but so far only 2 have passed muster!

The first piece is from Tantrix. I found these in a charity shop ages ago and bought them because I like the shape. The front is covered in grungepaper which has been coloured with distress ink and then stamped. Have used a chipboard watch face with some german scrap wing and a spinner. The back is embossed metal, which has been aged with black acrylic paint.
The second one is a scrabble piece. Embossed metal on the back with a key set in glossy accents and micro beads on the back and a little hanging charm. The third one I am working on is a poker chip - but I am already on my fourth attempt - so I can see that one not being finished!
