Tweet Tweet - Crafty Boots

It's time for a new Crafty Boots challenge and Amy has set this one - and it is for anything bird-related.

I decided to use my 'caged bird' die from Tim Holtz's range.


Started with Dylusions - melted chocolate, bibrant turquoise and fresh lime. Painted the cage with French Roast and Old Gold Fresco paints, and the bird I used walnut stain distress ink and spiced marmalade stain.
Used a Paperartsy 'mini' script stamp in walnut stain randomly round the edge of the tag, then added some Dylusion solid leaf stamping.






You have two weeks to join in - hope to see some great tweeting!!
