A Bird House

This is an altered Bird Box I did for a swap on a forum I belong to. I really like this set of plates by Paperartsy. I wanted to do the box with a theme and these to me just seemed perfect for it.
I did the backgrounds with distress inks and over stamped them with patterns and designs before cutting them to fit the box, then I collaged the images over the top highlighting bits with glossy accents to try and give a layered effect. I drilled holes in the top for the string so It could be hung. The front
