I've been wanting to play with this new BirdCage stamp set, and finally got a chance yesterday! I had a card base already made from a piece of Hemingway cardstock and was planning on doing some paper piercing... yeah, I know... there isn't one single pierced hole on this!! Funny how things totally turn around, isn't it?
Anyway, I love the retro top to the Happy Birthday sign from Hotel Signs, so I started with that in VersaMark. Then I stamped the Script Background twice on the right side with VersaMark, to create a subtle patterned base. I layered a scrap of old lace to divide the two images. I edged the entire card front with Burnt Umber Palette.
I stamped the birdcage in Burnt Umber on White UltraSmooth cardstock, added a bit of pink from a Copic marker, and edged it first in Belle Rose Palette and then again in Burnt Umber. I layered this on a bit of pink cardstock from Bazzill Monochromatic Reds. This panel is then popped up on Pop Dots.
Next up, this yummy pink velvet ribbon (I can't remember who the manufacturer is) & sheer organza from the Willoughby Ribbon collection. I topped it all off with a flower & buttons from the Lemonade Blossoms & Buttons and Audrey Embellishment Jar, tied with White Scrapper's Floss.
I think it looks a little Mod-Vintage...
What do you think?
