so came across a most fab find at the store today! they had the tim holtz alterations dies by sizzix! so i picked some up to bring home with me, and a sizzix bigkick too! i'm too nervous about messing with larger dies in my cuttlebug, so the bigkick was on sale so i went for it! let me tell you...these dies are FAB-U-LOUS! they cut through grungepaper and grungeboard like BUTTAH! (the bird and the hanger are the alterations dies).

I created this bit of "art" for the Gingersnap Creations challenge GC47. The challenge was to use the colors Ginger, Copper or Rust. I went with some lovely Rusty Hinge distress ink on the bird, and the background is painted with tarnished brass distress crackle paint then inked with walnut was the closest "metallic" i had!
