Another entry to the Moxie Fab challenges... there are so many awesome challenges going on over there at the moment! This card is for the love challenge.
I started off with a background created with a pile of distress inks.. can't remember the colours but if you want to know then please feel free to ask. I picked those colours because I think this is a really warm and comforting colour combination, just perfect for a love card.
I then decided I wanted to add copper and gold embossing powder, for a sort of autumnal feel. Foliage seemed a sensible way to go, and so I went for edges and left the space in the middle for the sentiment. If you look closer there are some foliage images which are unembossed because i liked the subtle look of the embossing ink.
The stamps are all from the Papermania Bird Song set which I recently acquired in a sale. The birds were embossed with fired brick distress powder on to vellum, and stuck on. The top one looks a bit odd because of the shine - it looks much more solid in real life but I couldn't get a pic which showed that as matt and the gold and copper as shiny!
Finally, I created a black card blank and stuck the panel on top. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out :)
