Alter something...like a mouse trap

Welcome to the Smeared Ink DT monthly hop!
this month's theme is "Alter something"
For the longest time I have wanted to alter a mouse trap...so here it is :)
I used some images from the  Heavy Metal digi set I printed them out and added some gold bronze paint to them then distressed them, added an old add and some flowers some jewelry and a fleur de lis now I have a new...mouse trap...I guess I could use it to hold notes to DH shopping lists and stuff.

be sure to check out the rest of the hop and see what the other girls have altered.

Fantastic idea to alter a mousetrap! =) It looks amazing and if it can be used for list and stuff then it's perfect! =)

Well who would have thought a mousetrap would make such a fabulous art piece. Way to think outside the box! xxD

So beautiful very victorian. Love the mouse trap idea never would have thought of that in a million. It is always the biggest conundrum as to what to do with some of our best work. Love the note holder idea.
SUPER
