Also, when I think of the word home, a song instantly comes to my mind, a song by Gabrielle Aplin. In any case, the feeling is nostalgic, because things change so fast and it's no secret that I sometimes long for the old times at home.
And my last inspiration source was a photo from The Card Concept. The colors and textures were just so tempting.
For today's card I used Spellbinders dies. I used Bird Cage Two to die cut on Riccio Astrosilver Embossed Metallic and emboss on sand beige feuille cardstock. I mounted the die cut on the beige embossed piece. I die cut the cute Impression Obsession Birds Set four times from soft blue metallic cardstock and made two decoupage birds, with four layers.
I handmade lots of flowers with Bitty Blossoms, Rose Creations and Carnation creations. I also die cut a few leaves. All of these were made from leather textured, metallic and linen cardstocks. I adhered them around the bird cage forming a bouquet. I decorated the bouquet with two Fantastic Flourish Three die cuts and a bow made with Delicate pink trim.
I heat embossed a sentiment in white, on Heavyweight Vellum. This stamp is from Stampendous' Spanish Greetings set, which translates to Forever in English.
I added Baby Pearls - LeCreme and Baby Rhinestones - Silver, large pearl stickers, 2" white lace, a white feather and a little wood pin to finish the design. If you look closely you'll notice I roughly painted the flowers, the cage and the pin with metallic silver acrylic paint.
All was mounted on a Majestic Labels Twenty Five frame and label die cut from soft blue metallic cardstock. I used off white leather textured cardstock for my cardbase.
