One for the Birds

Good morning.

Here is a card for the The Paper Shelter #22 For the Birds  and for Sentimental Sundays #64  challenge.

I think this looks quite dramatic in black.

All the stamps used are by Chocolate Baroque. The main image was stamped on black card with Versamark ink and Cosmic Shimmer mica powders, in various colours, were dusted over to reveal the image. This was roughly torn and then the edges were embossed with gold powder.

The coloured mat layer was hand made marbled paper again with the edges torn and embossed with gold. The sentiment was treated in the same way.

The two birds were embossed with gold on black card. They were cut out leaving a black border around the edges.

The main image and mat were bonded to the black A5 size card with Pinflair gel and the birds and sentiment with sticky foam pads
