My favourite Birdcage

Hi everyone. I cannot believe I have another card for you to see. I have used the beautiful birdcage die that CraftyLoops sent me. I loved doing this card especially adding all the beads. It did take me a while as I had to make up the droplets that hang off the cage with wire. I need to learn how to do this properly, but its not bad for my first attempt. My only problem is that I cannot bear to part with it. Hope you like it.
  • Prima paper - pixie glen
  • Tim Holtz birdcage and bird diecut from the lovely Craftyloops that I inked up with
  • Antique linen distress ink and then glittered
  • Butterflies stamped onto prima paper with versafine archival vintage sepia ink
  • Bird die inked with broken china distress ink and then glittered
  • Bead charm made using jump rings and beads from an old bracelet
  • Droplet beads made up using wire and beads from stash
