Birds of a Feather
This card was made by embossing the Crafts Too 3055 Scrollworks Embossing Folder on a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic card stock. The following Shades Dye inks were applied by sponging and applying direct to paper-Nightfall, French Roast, Brownie, Cream of Wheat, Vanilla Cream, Latte, Sandcastle and Beach. The Memory Box dies used were the 98160 Perched Reedbird and the 98187 Woodland Branch, I cut the bird twice so I could layer one on top of the other for dimension. The hanging metal birds were made from black Vintaj Art Metal small rectangles that were embossed using the Woodland Birds Sizzix Vintaj embossing folder. After embossing the metal it was painted with Aged Metal Vintaj Patina, once it dried the paint was partially removed sanding it with a Vintaj Reliefing Block. The metal pieces were attached to the branch with black wire. The ribbon was colored with Nightfall ink to tone down the shiny color (it was a shiny rusty color). the black bottle cap was covered with a Vintage 1" Bottle Cap Image and attached to the card.
