For this card I blended some Panpastels, starting with lighter shades in the centre ranging to the red shades on the edge. I then set them with hairspray.
Using a Hobbycraft clear stamp of the bird in cage, I stamped the image using StazOn. I then stamped the same image on a post-it note and cut out the image retaining some of the stick side, I used it to mask the original image of the birdcage.
I then used a Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous stamp for the rays at the base of the cage. The birds above the cage are from "Bee Crafty" Winged Things set. The sentiment to the right hand side is from a Stampin' Up set called "Vertical Greetings".
