Beautiful Birdcage Collage

Hello creative people, I hope you are doing well.

I have a design to show using a gorgeous new cling single stamp Birdcage Collage from Chocolate Baroque.


The background was created with Dylusions inks and Distress Paint (yellow).   I over stamped with a stamp from the beautiful Dusky Damask set.   The main image stamped with Cobalt Archival ink was painted with Tom Bow markers.


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day,
Shirleyx

That BG is beautiful as ever and the colours you used for the new stamp are great! I love working with tombows and the little sparkle is just perfect to let some parts of the stamp stand out beautifully! Hope you have a colourful and inky weekend! Hugs, Gerrina

Had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I saw this!! Absolutely fantastic card. I love cards with birds on them and this one is the most beautiful I've seen for ages.
Can you believe that we STILL have snow on the ground in areas?! Half our backyard is clear and half still is blanketed with the white stuff. This has been the weirdest weather ever! There isn't even one blossom on the Magnolia and it should be almost past full bloom. The Robins and Woodcocks have suffered terribly, we have spent a fortune on fruit and worms ( yep, we bought worms, and now we dig them), so the ones that come here are nice and healthy. Still can't do any gardening! WAHHH !

I think this just might be one of my favourite cards of yours. The colouring is totally awesome and so is your background. I can't stop starring at it.
