Visible Image Stamps, Paperartsy Grunge Paste, Distress inks, Wow Embossing Powders & Treasure gold.

Hello again friends,

Today I'm sharing a card I've made with one of my favourite stamp sets from Visible Image, the fabulous 'Free Your Imagination set'.

I started off with the background, blending 3 colours of Distress ink, Salty Ocean, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed, I added a mask and spritzed water through it, bleaching the ink. then stamping the small feather randomly, using Mustard Seed ink. 
Now the messy bit, lol, I placed the mask back on the background, spreading a little grunge paste in 3 places, and left to dry.
Using a gold Treasure Gold gilding wax and my finger, I rubbed over the grunge paste to highlight it, then stamped the ink splat radomly with Ripe Persimmon ink, the Raven was stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed in gold powder, I also added the Treasure Gold around the edges of the background.

On a separate piece of card I stamped the feather 3 times with Versamark, heat embossed them in blue powder, fussy cut them, highlighted them with Treasure Gold, shaped them and secured with glue gel.

I inked a separate piece of card with Salty Ocean ink, stamped the sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed in Orange powder, cut to size, then using the mask and spreading some grunge paste onto the corners to add some more dimension, when it was dry I rubbed over with the Treasure Gold.
