Eileen Hull Collaborates with DCWV

For the month of November the Eileen Hull Design Team and DCWV are collaborating with a month long blog hop. This is my third piece using the fabulous papers from DCWV.
I have combined the papers from DCWV from the Cranberry Christmas Paper Stack with Eileen Hull's Cookie Box die and Bird Die.
The base is Eileen's Cookie Box Die covered with papers from DCWV; the gold gives my design a real opulent feel.
I added Eileen's Bird to my cage and applied DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze to the body to add further detail. I covered mountboard with a piece of DCWV paper which has grey dots and then applied the glaze over the top. To highlight the cracks further I added DecoArt Media Medium Grey Antiquing Cream, wiping away any excess with a baby wipe. I then added a coat of Matt Medium over the top to protect and to stop the Antiquing Cream moving any further. I also added touches of DecoArt Metallic Lustre to the body of the bird along with a wing from a metal butterfly earring. I added a mini gold bell for the eye of the bird.
The santa with the little girl is from Tim's Idea-ology Ephemera packs, adding a vintage touch to the design.
I used Eileen Hull's Twist and Style Tool to twist the wires for my cage element and added some pine cone embellishments from Tim Holtz.
A touch of moss has been added to the base for a little more texture.
A believe embellishment has been included again with added Metallic Lustre along with a Tim Holtz Remnant Rub.
This makes a wonderful alternative to a Christmas card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. To see lots more inspiration from the DT pop along to Eileen's Blog HERE.

Ahhhhh - I truly ADORE this Tracy. That little birdie is soooo PRECIOUS - I love every inch of her - from the very prissy crackle to the shimmer. What a sweet and hopeful project. The season of PEACE and JOY in flight - touching hearts. Xj.
