Birdcage Collage (by Carole)

Hello everyone, today sees the first of three posts from our regular Guest Design Team member Carole Cann. Carole has created a beautiful card using one of our lovely collage stamps.

Hello everyone.

I am pleased to be doing another GDT slot and will have three projects for you over the next three weeks, using some of the older stamps. Hope you enjoy looking at them.

My first sample uses Birdcage Collage, a lovely stamp which is very versatile and much used.

You will find some other samples on my blog page.

I have stamped onto black card with Versamark Ink and embossed with silver embossing powder, then coloured the image with pearlescent paints. The left hand edge has been cut away around the cages.

The edging uses one of the Floral Edges stamps and again is stamped with Versamark and silver pearlescent powder brushed over. I sealed this with a quick spritz of cheap hairspray.

The words are from the Loving Sentiments stamp set.

I hope you like this stamp as I have had fun using it again.

Thanks for visiting, and hope to see you again next week.

Happy crafting,

  1. This is a beautiful card Carole and the Birdcage Collage stamp looks so pretty silver embossed onto the black card, and the pink matted layer behind and the darker pink base card show it off so well. I love the metallic paints you coloured the image with too, and the leaves from the Floral Edges collection just appearing from underneath the topper and with more wonderful pearlescent sheen from the silver powder finish the look brilliantly. x


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
