Bird Song - Midnight Madness Challenge
I came across the Midnight Madness Challenge blog when following a comment left by Jeni on my blog. The Challenge is running for June; for each week you can enter once. The grand prize is cash - the more people enter the bigger the prize. Sounds fun, wish I'd found it sooner :).
The sketch is an interesting one, that could use either thin strips of paper, lace or ribbon, depending how you chose to interpret it. I've used a favourite line of double sided paper by Crate Paper, that I've bought from the Stamp Attic. Each time I use it up, I buy some more, it's so versatile.
The focus of the card uses a Basic Grey clear stamp from a set that also came from Stamp Attic. I've gold embossed the cage, but the cage door is open and my birds are flying free :). The wording comes from an Elusive Images stamp and the edges of the sentiment and the image are inked with Distress Ink. I love this stamp set, I think it'll get some heavy use.
