Gilded bird and cage


This is the last one (so far) of the printed card blanks and on this one I have used a Dreamweaver bird cage stencil and used matt white paste, when dry I have applied flitter glue through the stencil and then added gilding flakes.  I've chomped the top corners and layered it onto gild miri. The bird is by Stamp in the Hand done in Indigo Blu Morris Dance gilding flakes.  The happy birthday is embossed in brown onto a piece of velum.  I have used gold card candi as faux brads.

Thanks for looking and if you left a comment, thanks very much.

I love it. The whole design is fab. I love the indigo blue guilding flakes myself and have several tubs full, even if I don't use them nearly enough.
