RAG AND BONE


Hi,

I know its late at night for a posting but fell asleep early evening and haven't long woken up....... I wanted to get this piece in for the Gingersnap Creations Challenge 3D as we are out all weekend celebrating family birthdays.

It is a bit of a Spooky Hanging, but couldn't resist making it........hope it doesn't make you cringe too much. Made with 2 Tim Holtz birdcage dies, some cottons dyed with stazon and used various mediums to try and get the cage right.

Will see you all sometime over the weekend as have to post for 'Lets Ink It Up' which starts on 22 August (Sunday) just hope I am awake.......lol

Thanks for popping in and hope you all have a lovely weekend. Annette x
