My Bird Cage . . .

Thank you for hopping with us and Welcome to the the Welcome Spring Blog Hop, we are using the Welcome Spring SVG Collection from SVG Attic 
You should be coming from Lisa at 
My Bird Cage . . .
Hi, today I am featuring the bird cage from the Welcome Spring SVG set by SVG Attic.
This is all done with Kraft paper!  I love Kraft paper so when we all decided to feature this set, I knew I would be using Kraft paper and Tim Holtz Distress inks!

Distress Inks used:
                                1. Pine Needles, Gathered Twigs for the birdcage sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist in Sparkling Sunflower.
                                2. Black Soot, Orange Marmalade and Mustard Seed for the butterfly with a  
                                rhinestone brad in the middle to hold to top together. All topped with  Sparkling Sunflower Perfect Pearls mist.
                                3. Broken China and Peeled Paint on the flowers and Tattered Angels Spray in  Blackberry Cordial for the top flower piece and a rhinestone brad for the center.
                                4. Leaves are Pine Needles with Sparkling Sunflower Perfect Pearls Mist.
The flowers came from Give a Hoot Collection
The leaves came from the apples in this file from Fall Harvest Favor Boxes

So what do you think?  A verdigris metal birdcage?  This was a fun project!

Really like the paper and how it makes the cage look a little like metal.
