Another day...another challenge....

I was SO pleased to be awarded a Stampotique Design Team Favourite badge for the last challenge that I decided I'd have another go!!!
So here is my offering for SDC Challenge 28: Newsprint/Old Book Pages.


I sprayed a canvas with Dylusions Spray inks, then added some black and white highlights and a touch of  Viva Precious Metal in Blue Azure and Mother of Pearl. The birdcage stamp is PaperArtsy, as are the flower and cage dies. I cut these using old book pages, lightly tinted with Distress Inks. The quote is taken from one of my newly purchased anthologies (what a great word, that is!!). I printed this on the computer, then edged with oil pastels when I'd stuck it down...and VOILA!!!

Hope you like...and thanks for looking!
