Tando Alterables and 3D week

Each week over on the Tando Blog there is a theme....this week the theme is Alterables and 3d...

For the Bramford Crop Challenge Tracey gave us all a mousetrap, yep, a common, ol' garden (or cupboard) mousetrap.  After a lot of thinking I came up with this:-





The mousetrap was stripped of all nasty componants at great cost to my nails! then the whole thing was painted with black acryllic paint with touches of lime green added in.  The flowers and leaves are the fab new minis from Tando - these mini packs are just fab for all sorts of projects and are so versatile with so many different products...these ones have been inked using distress inks...the new summer colours, high lights and shaping was added using white and black pens, the flying pig is from a graphics 45 pad and the saying..........came out of my head - unless I've read it somewhere and can't remember where!!

Do pop on over to the Tando Blog - each day this week there is a post from a different DT member.

I love your mousetrap Carol. Very nice indeed and a great idea to move the trap workings. I've bought a rat trap to try next. x
