Life is better with friends

Hi everyone!  Have you all seen the cute new JustRite Stampers set called, Spread Your Wings?  I really love the bird cage images in this set.  They are soooooo pretty!  

I thought it would be cool to emboss the cage with silver.  Love how it turned out!  See my hot pink birds?  Yeah, I took creative license with this one.  I used the colors in this bright paper pad from SEI.  I think the shape with the Reverse Wonky rectangles makes a great back drop for this image.
A little tip when embossing images, I stamp and emboss it separately then I cut out my image and adhere it to the rectangle panel.  That way my rectangle doesn't warp and will layer straight.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
