Rusty bird cage card

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show-rustification
City Crafter-be inspired
Creative Card Crew-birds
Papertake Weekly-all creatures great and small
Crafty Creations-photo inspiration
Fab N Funky-vintage


I had so much fun with this one. I took a birdcage from Scraptastical Kreations, printed it, then cut it out, you can see I cut through one of the bars accidently, but I thought it added to the rusty quality. I smashed rusty hinge distress ink all over, thick so it would stay wet longer. Then I sprinkled vintage photo distress embossing powder on it. I love that distress powder stays rough and textured, it even feels rusty. The quote is "Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they sing among the branches. Psalm 104:12

Wow- that rusty effect is perfect. Lovely card. Thanks so much for all the work you put in at feline playful. It really helps me find inspiration using the blog to find challenges. It pushes me to try something different rather than just doing the same old same old.

I love the way you have altered the look and feel of the birdcage. The broken bar definitely adds another dimension to the card
