I let the design in the paper be my guide and decided not to do too much decorating. Like all of my flower layouts, it’s about the photos for me to look at and reminisce in the years to come.
I found a cute 3D sticker of a singing Robin on a branch in my stash. It gave me the idea to ‘hang’ the larger bird cage using pearlescent blue embroidery thread.
I did some simple embossing in white with shadings of blue on the bird cage:
I emboss-painted the wooden flowers by using a yellowish color for the centers and baby pink on the petals, leaving a small outer edge for magenta colored pigment ink (in an attempt to mimick the colors if the gladiolas). Clear tiny rhinestones added some bling to the centers.
Since the printed bird cage on the paper has jewels hanging from the bottom of it, I decided to add a couple of pink beads to hang on the other bird cage that I embossed in white and made the bird blue.
Thanks for looking and have a great day! Lisa : )
