Labled Bird Cage

It's a new month, and that means CCEE has a new Challenger. Frances (StampOwl) has come up with some wonderful challenges for us each week. This week we were to use labels. I did an emboss resist with the Porcelain Aviary images from the clear Basicgrey set, that I got from Stamper's Dream. I wish I had colored the cage a complimentary color, but I was pretty tired after returning home from a trip to Seattle, and didn't feel like starting over. Thus the cage of blues...*grin* It's colored with copics and the wires are all sparkly with Clear Ultrafine glitter.

For the labels, I stamped the Porcelain Aviary images with Versamark, and Clear embossed them. I then took my Tattered Rose (Ranger Distress Ink), and rubbed it directly on the labels giving it a colorwash, shabby look.

The lattice in between is a Martha Stewart border punch, and the butterflies are vellum colored with copics with a touch of glitter in the centers.

I made the sentiment with the 25 pt Trompe Script letters (JustRite) and the Harmony Rectangular Stamper Set. The flower button is from the Tres Jolie line of My Mind's Eye, and the organdy Ribbon is Stampin' Up!.
