Becky Fleck's Page Maps are a wonderful source of inspiration and the card today is from one of her card sketches.
The background is a new Hero Arts Stamp called Newspaper Background which I stamped using Sepia Archival ink. On the mustard colour piece of cardstock I pierced the stitch holes using a Stampin Up template and did faux stitching with a brown Momento marker. A Stampin Up scallop border punch was used for the right hand side trim.
The birdcage stamp is from Stella & Rose - Mabel "So Sweet" and the bird is from an Inkadinkado set. I used Staz On ink for both of these stamps. After die cutting the image with Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles I extended the chain on top of the birdcage drawing ovals by hand. The sentiment is from a Stampin Up set called On Your Birthday and I stamped only the bottom part of one of the stamps. It was die cut using a Sizzix / Hero Arts die called Small Tag Frame which I bought earlier on this week from Simply Creative here in Cape Town.
