Flower Power

Happy May Day! The Country View Crafts Challenge for May is Flower Power. This wall hanging combines the rust challenge of last month with the flowers of this month to create a bird cage. It been ages since I last did any die cutting and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed sending a piece of card though my machine only to see it turn into leaves or flowers at the other end!
The cage is a wooden blank that I 'rusted' with paint (just as I described here). I die cut the flowers, leaves and bird and added Ideaology that I altered with paint and alcohol inks. It looks fabulous on the wall in my studio!
I hope you will join in with us this month - you might win a fab prize!
