I had so much fun creating this card! I have to tell you that I am really enjoying finding different ways to use this MFT Diagonal Bars stencil since I bought it, I love it! And in today's card the stencil shines. I used the stencil, a piece of watercolor paper and some distress inks to sponge on the rainbow color: festive berries, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, twisted citron and broken china. Then I die cut the piece using a stitched panel die. Next I die cut and stamped with black ink one of the bird cages from the Tweet Friendsset and masked off the top ring and stem of the cage with some tape. I lined up my stencil and stenciled in spiced marmalade, mustard seed & twisted citron. Then I used the coordinating Cheerful Cages die and die cut a piece of white cardstock. I used just the three horizontal bars and glued them over my stamped cage. Next I lined up the stenciling on the bird cage with the stenciling on my panel and adhered the cage with foam tape (I hope that makes sense).I die cut, stamped and colored the birds using Copic markers and added them to the cage, popping up the red bird with foam tape. I stamped and added my sentiment along with some rainbow colored enamel dots to finish off my card.
