Caged Bird Inspired

earth day-Sentimental Sundays
inspired by film title (I know why the caged bird sings-Saturday Challenge

I didnt have hexagon paper so I used this kinda hexagon shaped stamp from basic grey over and over to make hexagon background. I used crushed olive and forest moss distress ink. I stamped the bird in the cage and embossed it with distress embossing powder in peeled paint.
