Beer Can Birdcage





Hello everybobs x  this card is for a friend of mine turning 40 today and has a surprise party tonight (no she wont be reading this lol).. ive been attacking the beer cans again..(come on hubbie drink up i need supplies) this time using tim holtz caged bird die and teamed up with first edition birdsong papers. i love the way using tin caches the light.  ive found if you pop the tin in your cuttlebug with the die underneath and the patterned side of the tin facing upward the die sort of bevels the tin as it cuts it making it safer to have as an embelishment.  anyways hope you like this one as much as the jalopy x

Tim Holtz Beer Can Jalopy


Hello everybobs xx well i was cutting it fine this time...i had a card to make for my dad and i as usual had left it till the last day for posting hehe... problem was my mojo had gone into hiding... and i found it in the strangest place.. the recyling bin.......   i just happened to knock it on the way past and out fell one of my hubbies empty beer cans.. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm i thought on picking it up... i wonder.....

well ten mins later after hacking off the top and bottom and laying flat the tin i was whizzing it through my cuttlebug along with dear old timmies sloppy jalopy die...  the siver was... well.. ok but not quite what i was after so out came the good old promarkers and a bit of Umber did the job nicely.. the ink sort of flooded and pooled as i was colouring and left the tin with a lovely marbled effect that i really liked!!!  I stuck the extra bits on using black foam pads for visability sake which worked great... 

Now i had my lovely lil car i needed a suitable background.. I also had a reel of sticky backed alaminium tape i wanted to play with so i experimented with that first...  to start with i ran it through the bug with a tim holtz checkered embossing folder... it didnt go all the way down the strip but it was easy enough to put the other end of the strip back in the folder and emboss the other end as the squares matched up nicely.  i used the same promarker to then colour in the foil... a perfect match!

for a paper i used a square from a 12 x 12 papermani portobello road paper which i heavily distressed using about 3 different inks to tie the whole lot together. the sentiments were from the same range... again distressed to match..  to finish a little bit of ink to the edges of the card and bobs ya teapot!!!

im sure my dad will like it!! and he should get it in time as it was in the post with the ink still drying lol

entered into a couple of challenges just for fun x
