Well it has been a while since my last blog, and in between my little projects of family birthday and anniversary cards, I have been making this flower garden and birdcage display.
I have used all Heartfelt Creations flowers as these are my all time favourites, and I have tried to make them look as real as I possibly could, some I have stamped and others not. I have also used Heartfelt open leaf and Memory box fern.
For my cage
I started off with just white card, and cut out my birdcage in two parts, and used some wooden BBQ sticks to add strength, the base is made from MDF and I added some beads for the feet.
For the top I used an old curtain ring and a wooden door knob which I cut down.
I then aged it all using some of Andy Skinners techniques as I wanted to achieve a Medieval type look for it.
Flowers and leaves
I used plain white card for all of the flowers and leaves, and coloured them with distress inks, pro markers and Dylusions sprays.
I then shaped them and added some wire to create stems, on some of the flower centres I added flower soft and also created some small buds using the flowers from the leafy branch set.
I have used here, Blazing Poppy, Delicate Aster and Arianna Blooms
These blue flowers are Sun-kissed fleur, delicate aster and cascading fuchsia
Inside, Red Blazing Poppy, shaped a little differently
This is the view from the top showing the Delightful Daisy and open leaf,
The Majestic Bloom is also inside the cage but is a little hidden.
I have thoroughly enjoyed making all of these flowers, it has been challenging and time-consuming, but worth it in the end
I hope you will agree
