Click on card to enlarge for a better viewFirst I stamped the Laughing Parrot by La Blanche stamps onto their fabulous paper and then I used Distressed Ink and Nibs to color the Parrot and the leaves. (what a great way to color) Next Tim Holtz Bird Cage was cut out of Grunge paper with my Vagabond and inked with Distressed Inks. After that dried, I cut open the door and applied a lacy looking corner embellishment to the top. The parrot was embossed with Utee Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. Both the bird cage and the Parrot were popped up using Therm O Web Dimensions.
The Designer Paper is from Chapter One Paper Pad by Kaiser Craft. The edges were distressed and inked with some Distressed inks to give it an aged look. After embossing some pink card stock with the Kassie Cuttlebug folder I used Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers dies to cut 6 of the smallest flowers. Using my Tool kit, I conditioned them by using the White conditioning tool and then I bent and shaped them. 6 small suns were punched out with the Sun Punch by Punch a Bunch and shaped for the Stamens. The Cheery Lynn Fern dies were cut from some Designer Paper as was the Fanciful Flourish. Each of those were applied to the card and the flowers placed on them. The sentiment is by Wendy Vecchi.
