Just For Fun- Precious Metal
I made this for the challenge at Just for Fun where we are to use metal. I bought a piece of metal at the Reuse store for $1.00. Rick said it would be too thick for my Big Shot (I wouldn't use a die you like with that). When I cut it out I could tell it was just a bit thicker than ideal but I just passed it through 3 times and got my die cuts (See I told you it wasn't too thick). Don't you just hate it when they are even a little bit right. I don't think I damaged anything so all is well. I painted my precious metal (it is now) with some paint I also bought there -Debby Travis hammered metal metallic paint. I painted over the bird with blue acrylic painted and stamped script on it. The crown is TH grunge board painted with Ranger silver dabber. I put alcohol inks on the cage but I didn't like how it looked so I took it off. I used a bit of black paint to age it . The beads and butterfly were from my stash.
Thank you for looking! Have Fun.
