Hi all, hope your having a fantastic weekend. It's Sunday again, and as you know every week I have been playing the challenge over at Gingersnap Creations, which this week is soft yellows and white. Now I did think of doing a card, but decided to carry on with my journey of the unknown and create something that isn't a card which I like to do with this challenge, so this week I have created a bird cage on a pedestal. To start with I got all my yellows together to see what I had got. I used to ribbon holders large and small and took off the tops and bottoms. I then got a selection of yellow papers together and even some yellow postage stamps, I then stamped birds and swirls in a light yellow and ripped all the papers and then decoupaged them on the base with modpodge. I think you can see how I did the rest, oh I did emboss the flowers with enchanted gold to give it a yellow sparkle look :-). Can you believe I have been a Gingergem for 2 weeks and then last week I was the homepage artist, I'm so honoured, I even showed my mum on my phone lol. I have won a prize so I need to email, but I am going to ask them to pass it to someone else as I don't think with postage costs that they send to the UK and to be honest just being the homepage artist was priceless (as they say lol). Ok ok I guess your saying shut up and show us the pic so here goes ...............
