Scrap It Up

A bit late posting this, Sorry. Had to wait til the PC was free.
A New Year, a New Challenge with some New Rules over at Smudgy Antics has started. Make sure those rules are read. You'll find them on the left hand side bar.
This next two weeks, the challenge is to
Scrap It Up
Use those bits and pieces that would normally be destined for the bin
The team have really excelled themselves this week with their projects.
For my piece, I used a bottle top. Just one of those from a beer bottle that was rescued during the festivities.
I got the idea from flicking through youtube and saw this by Linda Peterson.
The stamps used are Mr Poe and the raven wings from the Quoth The Raven rubber set that I am so lucky to have. Links here are for the digital version. Both stamped onto shrink plastic. The other is from the digi set Heart Wings. The rubber version is due to be delivered because I am a member of the Smeared Ink Rubber Club. Too late for this project though. This was printed twice onto card, coloured with promarkers and each piece dipped in UTEE before sandwiching the cage bars with silicon glue. The two raven wings pieces had black feathers and the cage hanger sandwiched between them. Final touch were some tiny nail art gems stuck around the rim of the bottle cap.

A bit late to decorate my tree for this year - but will be put safely away for hanging on the tree for next year.

OK guys and gals. Your turn to turn that trash into treasure. Then come and show us over at Smudgy Antics so that we can ogle at your masterpiece.
