Cage Tag

Good evening hope you all had a lovely weekend ...we had lovely blue skies here today and weather was a bit warm. Today am going to share with you a tag. It was something that I wanted to try for quite a time but never had the opportunity to explore with tags.
For this tag I distressed the back ground and done some stamping and on some stamps applied Perfect Pearls™.

Supplies List
  • Supplies List
  • Ranger Distress ink pads
  • A tag
  • Perfect Pearls™ Pigment Powder
  • Various floral stamps
  • Stamp background - Bronte Border by Visible Image
  • Jute, ribbon and lace
  • Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bigz Die - Caged Bird

I just love doing flowers from any kind of scarp of material I find at hand. This particular flower was made from the left overs of a sheer curtain J Loved the effect that came out and honestly I didn’t expect the effect to come out so beautiful.

As  you might notice from the picture, I adjusted  the  cage in a curved angle,  so that it will have a  3D  effect and also space  for the bird to have its wing set  out. At the lower edge of the cage attached a star charm in the center and at the edges some pearls.
For the cage to give it the effect of metal I used three layers of embossing powder. First layer I used Ranger black distress embossing powder. Second layer applied silver embossing folder and the third layer drizzled a bit of gold in places to give it an aged look.
For the cage hanger used also 3 layers of embossing, but instead of silver used bronze embossing powder with a drizzle of gold embossing.
