Visible Image free your Imagination

Morning all
Another Saturday another Dt post for Visible image :)
this week i have used the wonderful Free your imagination set, this one if so versatile, you can go masculine or feminine, simple or fancy, just wonderful to play with all your embossing powders, gilding waxes, glitters inks or whatever.

I have used my set with a die cut birdcage.
First i took a 6 x 6 copper card blank, then i printed a pink pattern paper cut it to size and went around the edge with the upper part of the bird, just showing the splattery part , then embossed this in copper embossing powder, i went all over the rest of the background with the group of birds in brushed corduroy distress ink.
the birdcage was coloured with burnt sienna pro marker then rubbed over with cast bronze gilding wax.
i stamped the bird on the backing paper, then on scrap card, the one on the scrap card i covered in glossy accents, once dry i cut him out . the backing paper was stuck down then the birdcage positioned over the stamped bird, the second bird i had done on card was then placed half in the door and half out as if he is escaping, the tiny dots and splatters along his top half are not lost because he has been stamped onto the backing also ( you just cannot fussy cut those tiny bits out!, i almost forgot these bits on the backing are also covered with glossy accents).
finally i stamped the sentiment cut it out, added some copper embossing around the edge and stuck down with sticky pads, then the last thing was a little black bow at the top of the birdcage.

I hope you like this little make .
