Today’s Timeless Tuesday challenge hostess is Maki. Her challenge is to use a Bird image and/or elements for your creation. I had recently seen the Faux Tarnished Metal technique on Shelly Hickox blog and wanted to try it out. I started by cutting Grunge paper with Tim’s Mini Bird & Cage set. I used the FauxTarnished Metal technique for the cage and the Crazed Porcellain technique on the bird.

I cut a strip of MME Lost & Found 2 Blush Patterned Paper with the Mini Paper Rosette Decorative Strip Die. The Rosette was adhered to a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a  Tear Drop Circle die and the bird and cage were adhered on top of the rosette.

A 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Rosy Patterned paper was sanded and stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock. A 4 3/4″ long strip of white paper was cut with the Faux Crochet Dienamic die. A 2″ x 4 3/4″ strip of Rosy paper was sanded the Faux Crochet Strip was adhered under underneath the paper strip. The strip was adhered over the stitched layers and Ivory Organdy Ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bird layers were adhered to the left hand side with dimensional. A pennant was cut and embossed with a Nested Pennant die and stamped with images from the Birthday Pennant stamp set. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish the card off.
