Grungy Monday & Simon Says

Hurrah! Another Monday twofer!! Simon Says Stamp and Show - any Tim Holtz technique - and Grungy Monday takes us to  this fab technique from December 2010

I took the birdcage die and cut it twice, once in a piece from the Kraft resist stack and once from a piece of plastic idea-ology packing, as per the Tim Technique.  I then ran the plastic cage through a texture fade and coloured it with copper alcohol ink to enhance it and fitted it over the bird and to the bottom birdcage.

Found some toning background paper (Basic Grey) and adhered it to a blank cardbase.
