A Wall Hanging

Good evening, well I have been looking forward to playing with this months freebie image from The East Wind and I didn't want to make a card and Crafty Catz teamie gave me an idea with her wonderful card a few weeks ago, which you can see here.  I had great fun making this and it's a bit different for me.  Also got very messy with inks and embossing powders.  I used 3 powders, copper, black and antique gold as I was trying to get an old overpainted, rusty type feel to the embossing.  The birds were cut on the Cricut then dry embossed with swiss dots folder and then inked with black ink.  Sentiment stamps and cog stamps are from SteamPunk Dreams from Creative Expressions, the key, eyelets, build a brad and ribbon are all from my stash.  I am very pleased with the outcome and on showing Ria, she has laid claim to it! lol  I hope you like it too.  The overall size is 12 x 12.
