Went scrap shopping with Mum and Odelia and got the Tim Holtz bird cage die (thank you Odelia)!! Well, it is gorgeous, I love it to bits and haven't stopped making little bird cages out of any spare bit of paper or chipboard since popping it out of the box! Mum has an envelope full of various shades to take home with her to France and has been sitting in the scrap room with me making cards.
Anyway, I had to have a play with it, not with the intention of making something specific, just to make anything!
I decided to go with a prison break theme and have the wee birdie on the outside of the cage!! In real life it has a gorgeous shimmer from Glimmer Mist which my camera has entirely failed to pick up.
The maple leaf danglies are from a necklace I bought in my fav shop in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, for about 2 Riyals and I think work really well on this.
These are some of the cards that Mum has been making and having fun with. Right, enough of this blathering... there is a bird cage on my work desk begging for my attention...
