Bird cage

I love Chocolate Baroque stamps and was lucky to have won the last
challenge, but overall, it's nice to make cards with a touch of
difference and challenge myself.


My lovely stamp is called 'Birdcage Collage' from Chocolate Baroque. Stamped with memento ink and coloured with versa mark inks and sponge daubers
and a few copic markers. Fussy cut and added to my card stock.
Glossy accent was added as well.
[I did, however, discover that glossy accent does not like the heat gun!]

Challenge:
Chocolate Baroque challenge....colour challenge
Simon Wednesday.....a/g
Fashionable stamping...Favourite things [experimenting with craft]

Well, this is a very special card! The stamp is amazing!! Maybe I'll write in English on my blog for the foreign followers. Sometimes it's better than Google Translate (although my English isn't perfect)

Gorgeous card Annie...beautiful coloring and I love the glossy accent affect! I read on another blog they used a heat gun to take air bubbles out of glossy accents:( Sorry you had issues, guess I won't risk trying it!

Oh WOW! what an incredible image - so intriguing and gorgeous! I cannot imagine how long it took for your to color this, but I appreciate every tiny stroke, and the pretty color choices, Annie! The feathers look so REAL, I want to touch their softness! the Yellows and golds really bring your masterpiece to life. FABULOUS and definitely "made with love" as your card says.
