I've been using the Madame Birdcage Skirt for my creation for 100 Proof Press this week.
I love how she has a bird cage within her skirt hence I added a bird cage using a Crafters Workshop template to co-ordinate with my image
My background has been coloured with Distress Ink brushed corduroy to add to the vintage feel and I have added the cage and branches from the stencil in black soot ink and then spritzed some of the areas with ancient copper Cosmic Shimmer Mist.
I hava added a little Idea-ology foliage to the top of my cage for dimension and added the sentiment IMAGINE.  I can see quite a few projects with this lady appearing soon as she could quite easily be used in my favourite steampunk creations.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the weekend. Tracy x x

Love the shimmery branch across the top. The birdcage is cool as the skirt of the lady. Lovely design!
