It's a bit bright

What a lovely week-end we have just had lots of sun and washing drying on the line.  Got me into bright and bold mode.

This tag is corrugated card heavy duty card with a double layer of corrugations the eyelet really squished it!   Spray the card with Cosmic Shimmer and that wonderful shade of blue.   For the flower I had to upset the IMPS their packets of wet food (they share a packet a day as a treat) comes 12 packets in a box.  You guessed it I needed the box for the finer corrugated card.  Poor mistreated little things thought they were getting a second treat could not understand why I wanted their box.    Stripped the top layer off the card and cut it with a flower die in the big shot.   One of the things that is so brilliant about the Bigz dies is that they will cut just about anything.   More Cosmic shimmer coloured the flower layers and the Tando Branch.

Tando bird cage and Tando bird also blasted with Cosmic Shimmer sprays.  You cannot see the shimmer in the picture but these sprays all have a lovely sheen to them.   Nestie die cut for the scallop circle stamped with an Andy Skinner stamp from his words set.   Distress inks used to colour the sentiment tag and to stamp it.  A TH pin attaches it to the corrugated card base.

  5. Super card Zoe, lovel the vibrant colours and loads of lovely texture.

    I keep wavering over buying a birscage, but each time I put them down again because I'm never sure what I will actually do with it - that comfort zone thing again.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Allsorts this week and good luck.
