Thank you to all my followers for leaving such lovely comments for me, they are much appreciated.
I am away all weekend so this post is scheduled. I will hopefully be buying lots of new crafting goodies by the time this goes live, and no doubt Angie and I will have been in stitches laughing at something that has gone on....We cannot go anywhere without getting into a bit of bovver!!! In a nice way!
Everybody we know says we could have a good time in a garden centre in the middle of winter!!!! What do they mean?
I hope you like today's "Crafty Make"....I had a little go at cutting with my New Tim Holtz "Birdcage" alterations die.
I have had it a few weeks now, and was dying to have a go with it. I decided to try and put it over the top of Tim's other alterations Die, the "Sewing Room", I saw this technique in a magazine, I am really pleased at how it has turned out too.
I started by using Grunge Paper and cutting out the dress form.
I then cut it again in this gorgeous pink paper by Glitz Designs, I cut the birdcage in this paper aswell.
As this is double sided paper, I used the other side (which is blue) to cut out the bird and a couple of tiny flowers. I have made a banner with a bit of old book page, added some pearls and ribbon and I found this neutral braid in my box, thought it went with this quite well. All the edges are inked with Walnut Stain. I finished the form with a set of wings which were stamped, inked and covered in glossy accents.
I then mounted it onto a large "Postcard" style big tag by Crafty Individuals. The colours these tags come in are just gorgeous, and this one just needed the edges inking with Walnut stain and it was done.
