bright birdcages

This is an older card but it never did get posted before... thought I'd post it now and let you know that this Impression Obsession birdcage trio is available in rubber, and is now also available as part of a clear set called "Tweet Life," along with some other great bird and cage stamps designed by Leigh Hannan. (BTW...the cages in the clear set are 3 separate stamps, while the rubber stamp has them all together.)

These colors are not in my regular color palette, and especially not in this combination... not sure what inspired their brightness at the time! I used LePlume markers and a waterbrush to fill in the scene. The dot oval helps to ground the image, and each little cage is embellished with a matching jewel. The sentiment, Enjoy your Day, was cut at wonky angles, and matted. I punched a hole through it to accomodate the ribbon.

That sentiment reminds me... our upcoming challenge is to create a card that depicts what you would do on a "me" day... hope you can join us!

I'll take the bright colors today - trying to steel myself for the next 6 days when DH will be traveling to another island to visit friends, encourage coworkers, and evaluate his language progress. Sigh.....................................
Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Very cute. Love the colors...

  2. Stunning! I really love the bright colors & bling!

    Looks like more time to create when DH's gone. I'm sure you'll miss him though.

  3. Your card is so very very pretty! Love the embellishment too!

  4. The texture on these and the colors and the details are amazing. I am in love with them.
