Altered Jigsaw Piece - 'Birds of a feather flock together'

Another altered jigsaw piece using the same caged bird die as in my previous post.  More of a romantic, shabby chic feel this time.

The background was painted, glimmer misted then rubber stamped.

The cage was painted first, then covered with Distress Crackle Paint and rubbed over with some gold metallic paste.

It's all cut from GrungeBoard again, except the jigsaw piece which is an actual jigsaw piece - I peeled off the shiny picture first, before painting.

The ribbon hanger was made from a piece of ribbon which was part of a large bag of ribbons I won from Crafty Ribbons!  Here they all are - so lush!

If you would like to be in with a chance to win some ribbons, head over to their post 'Friday Freebie 22' and leave a comment, simple as that!  Good luck.

Just one more picture of my jigsaw piece from another angle.

Hope you enjoy your weekend whatever you're doing.

Oh shiny, shiny and pink!
I thought I liked the Home tweet home one in your previous post but now I've seen this one, my heart is lost to the shiny pink birdies :-)
Very seriously pretty.
Those are fantastic dies, or rather you make them fantastic!
