More birdcage!

Title said in my best Christopher Walkin "More Cowbell" voice.

I started out creating the card in yesterdays post because I loved the way the stamp filled up the bracket shape of my card.  Then I proceeded to make two more cards with it - three cards within two days of purchase!  That's just crazy talk!

Here was the second.  I wanted to just simply stamp it in black rather than the embossing I did yesterday.  I knew the birds *had* to be yellow.  And I also colored in the bases of the cages black:

Stamps:  Impression Obsession, Papertrey Ink
Markers:  Copic

I wanted to do something a little more colorful for the last card (and switch it around to the portrait orientation).  I thought about coloring each of the birds a different color but decided to use the color on the cages and let the stamping and birds be brown:

I think I might have preferred the brown to be black but I was just trying to be different.  It's not easy to tell in this picture but I did cut out two of the cages and popped them up for some dimension on this one - here's a better look:


Stamps: Impression Obsession, Papertrey Ink
Markers: Stampin' Up
