Golden Birdsong

Hello and welcome to my blog  :)  I have a simple but pretty card to share with you today, it was one of my DT samples.  I have used Chocolate Baroque stamps from the Doodle Birds, Edgy Edges, and Rustic Fragments sets; Distress Oxide inks, Versafine Clair inks, Versamark ink, gold EP and a gold pen. 

I took a white base card and stamped a couple of images randomly in second generation ink.  I then stamped a textured image randomly over the card using first and second generation ink.  

On another piece of white card I stamped the border image twice then trimmed the card around each image to create two panels.  I then stamped and embossed a bird on each panel in gold.  I edged each panel with a gold pen and attached the panels to the card.    

On a spare piece of white card I stamped and embossed one of the butterfly images in gold, cut it out and painted it with DO inks.  I then attached the butterfly to the center of the card with 3D gel.  

This is quite a simple design from me but I loved creating it!  The colour mix of blue tones and gold is classy and bright, and I think this design is suitable for any occasion and recipient.
Thank you for dropping in today, I hope you've enjoyed this post and perhaps been inspired.  Feel free to visit my blog again anytime, I look forward to seeing you again soon  :)
