When Angels Are Near: Bird Cage Assemblage

*****To Join our July Challenge: Click Here*****

Happy Monday Everyone, Norma here with you today!!

Today I have a sweet little bird cage assemblage piece to share with you.  This project is very simple to create and I LOVE the way it turned out.

For this project I'm using the NEW Bird Beauty stamp set along with bits and pieces from my handy dandy scrap pile :D

I embossed all of the stamped images with black Super Fine Detail embossing powder.  Then I spritzed the bird's nest with Lindy's and inked the edges.  The base is just an empty ribbon spool (I don't like anything to go to waste around here, lol).  I used my Exacto knife to cut a slit for the paper to go into. 

This bird is embossed with the same black embossing powder and inserted into the spool the same way.

To create the bird cage I used 20 gauge wire, wire cutters, the rim of a mason jar and hot glue.  I simply cut the wire into strips, wrapped them around each other on the top to create a dome and hot glued the ends inside the rim.  Next I glued the ribbon spool to the mason jar rim.

To keep with the feathered theme, I added beautiful feathered wings from the craft store.

I found the perfect hanger in my stash of findings.  The beautiful blue gemmed piece came from a local thrift store.  I think it may have been on a chandelier at some point.

I added cream colored glittered tulle to soften the edges of the wired bird cage.

An angel in near!!
