Crafty Individuals' Bird Cage in a Frame


Crafty Individuals have brought out some great new stamps, two of 1920's style ladies, one of elephants, which I am working on at the moment, and this beautiful bird cage stamp, CI320. I coloured it with Pro Markers and then cut around the ornate frame, and set it against a sheet of Spring background paper. The shadow box frame was coloured with crackle paint and Silkies (from Imagination Crafts). The bird cage was made from a mould made from a Tim Holtz Alterations Die which was made out of shrink plastic, and then the mould made up with Fimo clay.

The flower top left was made from a mould made from part of a Primark necklace, then made up in friendly plastic, and likewise the centre of the lace flower bottom right. The lace had a flower pattern within it so I cut out just the flowers and layered them up and gathered them slightly. I then added a resin rose from a Primark bracelet which I coloured with alcohol inks, and the leaves are cut from a strip of lace which was mainly made up of a leaf pattern.

  9. So soft and elegant! Beautiful creation and love the shrinky birdcage! I am in the process of shrinking a couple of things! I bought a little toaster oven and it is in my guest bathroom. Not one person has asked, "why do I have it in the bathroom." I guess in CA anything goes! Have a great weekend!

  10. Designer bird cage is constructed out of different materials. One of best materials is stainless steel. Stainless steel cages are very expensive, but they're worth the money, and you should educate yourself on the topic before making your decision.
