Bird tag Scrapstuffz Inspired by....

After I finished my guest designer post for Scrapstuffz, I had some left over die cuts and ideas.  I used one of the tags where I had been experimenting with backgrounds.  This one is inked with spritzes and sprays then I added a texture, Goosebumps clear texture spray.  Finally when I decided what I was going to do with it, I stamped lightly with a music background stamp in copper.  I added lots of left over die cuts.  The bird cage, bird and wing were left over from the many layers of birds I created for the first project and use Tim Holtz Sizzix diecuts..  I also used a left over flourish and leaf (Spellbinders) from various other projects.  I inked everything up with Quick Quotes mocha moma chalk.



I also had my past passion BEADS!  Readers I tell you I may have thousands individual beads, no lie!  I have so many I can't do inventory any longer.  (It used to be a business for me).  So I have added some vintage Czech glass drops, glass drop head pins with ryolite beads and a laser cut wooden musical note to the bird cage.  


The bird is cut from coppery glitter paper with the wing on a pop dot but that is a little hard to see.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
