Simon Says Stamp and Show - Tim Holtz insired

Hi everyone,

Today I'm gonna show a tag I made for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge.

I made a tag shape using heavy cardstock. Then I layered a bit of old book paper, which I tore here and there. Then painted it with CH paints. I die cut a bird cage shape and utee-d it 4 times and the cut some bars of it.
I stamped and embossed the bird before I adhered the cage.(I am not totally happy with the result) Decorated with a rose (grunge rose like) and some little prima flowers. Used lots of distress inks and some TH and Prima stamps. Added some text made with DYMO. And that's it. 

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting,
