For the first one I choose a rinse aid background on canvas sheet.
Inked the edges and the lower left corner with black Archival Ink. Added a gold mini heart brad to the upper left corner and three gold mini brads to the lower right side.bird.
Painted black acrylic paint over the bird cage, then thickly coated with brushed pewter Distress crackle paint. While the paint was still wet, used a heat tool to get the bubbly effect.
Double Distress technique. All of the edges were colored with brown Color Box ink.
