so this is done with the Tim Holtz birdcage die..love this thing! I used tattered rose distress ink on the cage, inked the bird with tea dye distress ink, and the background is done with shimmer mist in a rose color sprayed directly on the chipboard, giving it a brown/rose color. added a few feathers, my handmade paper flowers and gemstones and buttons.
here is a card I made using some flowers i made from paper scraps..thanks Jess Kinderstampo for all the lessons in how to make my flat paper flowers come to life. I painted the edges of them with lindys starburst spray..LOVE that stuff! :)
yes you read that right, this month is my friend Beths birth month. we have dubbed it BETHuary. So I made her this tag as part of her gift. I made it with chipboard and added magnetic strips to the back so it is a magnet. teh flower is made from punches and cheap card stock, but i love the dimension I got from it. :)
hah happy accident here..I was using my lindys stamp gang starburst sprays & I used a paper towl in the box use to spray in..well teh next day I went to spray something else and saw how pretty the paper towel looked..so my brain started thinking hey, I should try to make some flowers with this. so I used my bigshot and nesties and wow..now I have some very pretty flowers, and I recycled!!! gotta love happy accidents :)
