To Imagine is Everything

Hello my lovely fellow bloggers!  Sometimes I get asked to do a project and need to go hunting for inspiration.  All part of being in a design team I suppose as not all that we work with are 'our thing'.  In this instance I had to go into my big cupboard for inspiration.  Nearly got lost in there, its such a mess hahahaha!  Anyway, I came across this lovely wooden heart tray that I bought ages ago just crafters all have stuff like that eh haha! 

My prompt was 'Distressed/Inked' and so with my heart tray in hand I had a  lovely time :D

The patterned background paper has been changed with bubble wrap & paint.  The Tando bird, cage, and flowers have been covered with paint & crackle glaze.  The little cage has been wired so that it dangles. The butterflies covered with what was left of the backing paper.  The heart tray was painted and  crackle stamped with 'chocolate' ink.  I think I shall keep this one :D.  Thank you for visiting today, lots of love & hearts xxx
