Why a Bird Sings

This is the first Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers Blog swap entry. The theme for February was "Red"

Using the cube pattern that I enlarged I used a red decorative paper that I stamped with a music score and covered that with pearl ex on top of that I stamped the bird and glued some words.

The stamped bird is highlighted with seed beads, glitter and diamond glaze. The sides that have the words also have red German scrap. On top I have perched a red bird (I think it's head is on backwards but they were all like that at the store so I guess it is more my head that is on backwards) I added some shimmery paint and some glitter to the bird and she is perched on a bead of red glitter.

To finish the cube off I threaded some fishing wire with seed beads as a hanger and added some red yarn to the bottom that I frayed a bit.

I hope whoever wins my Why a Bird sings loves it!

It's great, love the colour and the whimsy with the little bird perched on top. I did warn you that cubes could be addictive!

Lovely bird and box. Love the seed beads and what you did with it.

I think the diamond glaze and liquid glass are one and the same. I use it for everything. To stick my layers, since it gives me some time to wiggle the layers into place :-)
