Live The Life You've Imagined

My second sample for Crafter's Companion shows taking place on Create and Craft this Friday 3rd May at 9am and 2pm.
I used the Floral Frenzy embossing folder in the background, embossed on black card and coloured with Treasure Gold wax.
The bird image has been showcased in a dimensional arch which I have also embossed with the Floral Frenzy folder and coloured with the metallic Distress Paints.
The bird has been stamped with black Archival Ink onto an arch panel which again has been coloured with metallic Distress Paints. For added interest and dimension I have also included a bird cage charm.
Dimensional flowers have been added to the top corner cut from black card using the Die'sire Blissful Flower die. I have also added touches of Treasure Gold wax to the petals for added shimmer.
To complete I have added a Word Band and three wooden birds for added interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
