More Birdcages

A collage card for you today using the Basic Grey Birdcage stamps and a Prima Marketing Inc bingo card stamp.

I wanted a bit of dimension with the bird and birdcage stamps so I stamped them out in white on some kraft card and then again in black, making sure that I did not stamp directly over the top of the white so that there was a bit of a ‘shadow’.

They are clear stamps which makes life a bit easier for this technique 🙂

The bingo card was stamped on card and then sprayed with Shimmerz Spritz.

The button is actually made of stone, I could not resist them when I saw them in my local haberdashery shop.

You might be wondering why some of the photos say 2009? Well I confess, I made this card in 2009 and took some pictures of it but I wasn’t happy with the main picture and it was on my list to re-take it. Well I finally got around to retaking the piccy – Ooops, only a few months late!

May your day be a collage day,

full of interesting bits and bobs.
