Bird on Wire Fence

Still playing with alcohol inks. When I do backgrounds, I usually make a batch of them at a time so I have some ready prepared in the event I need to make a quick card. Saves time. Plus inks can be messy and I’m not always in the mood or dressed appropriately.

die: ‘Bird on Wire Fence’ 17403 by Paper Rose Studio

stamp: Happy Birthday 3320C by Stamp-it

alcohol inks: Butterscotch, Caramel, Rust, Stream, Lettuce, Oregano

Create alcohol ink background. This is always a serendipitous journey. Even if using the same colour inks, each time you swipe it through, you will get a different result. I love it!

I cut out the complete die twice, and then the bird only a 3rd time.

I wanted to use a combination of silver, gold and copper Fab Foils over the wire. I thought they would compliment all the colours in the background and be a bit more arty. I did each colour separately, appling glue to the places that I wanted silver, setting aside to dry, appling the silver Fab Foil, then the same again for the gold, then the copper. A bit more time consuming but not so messy.

Once I had foiled all the wire, I Magic Mounted the die onto my alcohol ink background. I then took my 2nd copy of the die – cut off all the wire, leaving only the fence posts and bird with grass along bottom, and Magic Mounted this over original. The extra bird I had cut, I edged with white ink, then Magic Mounted it over others.

I decided to loop some real silver wire into place over the paper spirals for a more realistic effect. I secured into place behind posts.

I stamped and embossed birthday wording in silver onto light green card, sponged sepia ink around, then matted onto black corrugated card and glued into position at top right of card.

I matted card front onto black card, then onto Butterscotch folded backing card.
