Bird Cage Luminary

Welcome friends!!!!
Thank you so much to all who commented & my FB page on the previous post KNOWING ME.
A DIY luminary withTim Holtz caged bird die cuts is what I share today. I loved the outcome...................beautiful!

I started by inking the die cuts with distress inks (squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, picked raspberry). I then stamped the newsprint over it with black archival ink followed by a medium coat of clear rock candy crackle paint. Vellum was then glued on the inner side of the cages. All the four die cuts were then glued to a chipboard base. Finally embellishments.............and I had this wonder, a luminary!

The chipboard bird colored with distress inks & coated with clear UTEE. Don't miss the HOME resin embellie & the cute charm.

Do you see the LSG shimmer over the pink flowers?

Look at that crackled effect!!!

And here it is with a tea won't this be a unique home decor item?
