Rusty Bird

Rusty Bird! Could that be misinterpreted? I am, of course, referring to my little punched bird on my tag. the blue / silvery base is from my texture paste play night a couple of weeks ago - sand texture paste and then coloured with TH Distress paints in blues and brushed pewter. Not sure how the pewter is showing on the photo. I decided to play with some different attempts to create rust effects on my cogs and bird using texture pastes, embossing powders, inks and paints.

I would  like to enter this into Sandee and Amelie's Steampunk challenge - Blues, greys and rust!

Thanks for looking
