I happened to come across this die recently by Tim Holtz, it wasn’t even on sale and I bought it! Yikes……usually the only thing I don’t buy on sale, in the stamping world, is Stampin’ UP! What can I say….I liked it!
Here’s the result of that purchase ~
First of all I have to tell you that the wing on the little birdie was NOT part of the die set. I kept thinking the bird looked a little scrawny – then the light bulb went off in the brain and said ‘a wing’. *smile* I got out the trusty ole Two Step Bird Punch and it fit the bill perfectly. I then distressed the edges of the cage with Crumb Cake Ink and sponged the edges of the small white flower with Pretty in Pink Ink. I mounted both bird and cage with dimensionals. If you look closely you will see that I added a second tail to the bow, there are four tails and one bow, it seemed to add a little more flair. The flowers are the Boho Blossom punch.
Spellbinders provided the scalloped circles, two in Always Artichoke and one in the Pattern DSP Stack. To square off the card I placed Basic Pearls at two corners, upper left and lower right. More pearls were added to the flowers and bird. All was mounted on Crumb Cake card stock.
I kept the inside low keyed ~
Have you ever noticed how the Scalloped Edge Border punch compliments the Spellbinder Nesties – Lacey Circles die? Not bad, huh?
