Judy - Caged Bird

Designer: Judy Kreucher (jaydekay)
Date Posted: July 31, 2011
Keywords: DOLCE, JustRite
Category: All Occasion
Stamps: JustRite sentiment-from the Just Because Set
Ink: Adirondack mushroom
Embellishments: natural jute twine, square silver brads
Tools: Spellbinders Exclusive JustRite Custom Tag Dies, Tim Holtz "caged bird" die, Spellbinders Rose Creations, Spellbinders nestabilities label 8, EK success 3D Dots, black marker, sponge
Paper: white, DP, The Paper Cut Blu Raspberry (Festive Variety Pack),

I aged everything with Adirondack mushroom dye ink. Parts of the bird cage, bird and flowers are popped up using EK success 3D Dots.
To save an extra layer of paper, I used a black marker to color the edges then added my antiqued layer of dp. When sponging the mushroom ink on the bird cage
make it kind hit and miss. This gives it an aged look.
If your dp isn't very thick for the bird, just glue it to card stock then cut out.

This is so beautiful, Judy! I really like the soft, muted effect you achieved with that particular color of distress ink.

Oh my, my. This is so soft and pretty, sweet Judy! And how you got that caged bird to fit on a card is beyond me. But that you did and you did it beautifully!
