Amazing Mold Putty Design Team Hop

Welcome to the AMP Design Team hop.  If you have come from Joyce's blog then your definitely in the right place.  

Now on to my project.  I am always looking for weird things to alter.  I try to look for things that have a flat surface or something that is shaped perfectly for paper so I decided to buy some mousetraps.  They are perfectly flat have  a cool metal piece on it which by the way be super careful taking it apart because you definitely will SNAP your fingers right in the trap OUCHIE... is all I can say!!

The burnt orange flowers I made using AMP putty and resin.  I painted them using Globecraft & Piccolo gel enameil in metallic gold and copper!!  It gave it an almost glass like look.

Love your mousetrap, Monica. I have been wanting to decorate one but just never quite sure what to do with it. Your piece is an inspiration. Love the flowers and how the gel enamel perked them up. TFS

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away
your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
