Altered Bird CageBy Jcchris
First, I covered the chipboard bird cage using the Mix'd Media. Here I apply 4 times of the Mix'd Media inx to get the white that I want. You can use the heat tool to dry up the inx for fast drying.
Next, I inked up Donna's stamp and inked all around the cages. I wanted to get the rustic look.
For the next preparation, I wanted to create my flowers & I used the little flower dies. Run it through your die-cut machine. Remove the paper from the dies.
Roll it up, secure the bottom and you'll get handmade paper flowers.
I wanted to flatten my flowers, so what I did was I sprayed the Smooch Spritz to dampen the flowers. At the same time you'll have glittery effect to your flowers too.
Immediately use your acrylic block to push it down and you'll flatten the flowers.
Here I applied the Smooch Glitz at the edge of the petals to get more glitters on the flowers.
Here's the completed altered bird cage...
I wanted to create a white-washed bird cage with hint of pastel colors. Well to give a shabby-chic and elegant look to my bird cage. The bird cage is very shimmery in real life. Unfortunately you can't really see it in the photos.
Hope you enjoy the lil tips today & thank you for coming by!
