Where do I start?? Maybe it was Youtube that got me hooked, or going to new scrapbooking shops...Maybe it was the online class with Christy Tomleson, I'm not sure who is to blame...but it got me addicted...
It all started with pulling out my scrapbooking papers...no, I'm not a scrapbooker...at all, ohhh but I love the pretty papers. Painting is my thing...so when I can mix the two...oh, I'm in heaven!
Then I saw a birdcage...not just any birdcage...a Tim Holtz birdcage die...What did it take to make this beauty??? Yes...a BIGSHOT. I had to have IT.
So off to Amazon I went...and now I am the proud owner of this wonderful new toy!
I then spritzed, pounced, sprayed, my new cutouts. What is funny, I've had the dies for the flowers for a looooong time. I have a Wizard, it just doesnt do the trick like this. I am using my wizard for other uses, the company would probably cringe...I flatten my vintage silverware through it.
I wanted the bird to show up so I put it through to give it this design, then tinted it, then added Goldens pearl over top. I'll probably hang something in the holes at the bottom, but I got so excited I had to share. If you have one of these Bigshots, I would LOVE to hear what you do with yours.
