The background that included birds in a cage was just not working as a whole piece so I cut out the cage and traced out all the bars and framing with peel-off gold stickers.
For the first I used a tone on tone orange background paper and repeatedly stamped the sentiment on it. I toned the edges with 'black soot' distress ink and added a gold peel-off scroll at the top. More peel-off trim creates a chain and I popped up the cage on foam tape over it.
You can see that these birds and the cage has that shiny glittery surface. For the next one I used the same exact treatment but over green paper with a pre-printed corner bracket. The hanging bracket I added is different on this one, too.
Now those are love birds.
