If Happy Little Bluebirds Fly...

Here is my entry to this weeks Sunday Postcard Art challenge, which is 'Over The Rainbow' My poor little caged bird is longing to be free and fly away over the rainbow.
The bird and cage are from Cherry Pie, and the tree and flying bird are by Tim Holtz.
The background has been watercoloured on watercolour paper, so is a bit bumpy, then embossed with sparkly embossing powder.
This was my first attempt at using a stamp positioner (to get the bird in the cage). This makes perfect sense in theory but a lot of caged birds ended up in the bin lol.
Thanks very much for looking x
