Brusho Birdcage Collage

Good morning folks, have you seen the gorgeous new individual stamps from Chocolate Baroque? Goodness me they are stunning and the perfect price for a crafty treat without breaking the bank too.

This one is called 'Bird Cage Collage' and is a lovely image, so detailed!

I began by having a play with my Brushos (Ultramarine, Violet, Emerald and a little Turquoise) and water colour card which I used to create my background. I stamped the image with brown ink and distressed with Tumbled Glass distrss ink. Next I stamped the image with versamark and embossed with gold ep before cutting out and colouring with distress inks. I stamped the focal image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured with my Graph'It markers and carefully cut out before popping up on 3d foam pads.

I've used purple card for matting and layering and simply adding some gems to the corner to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft Stamper Take it Make it: take a technique colour
Lisa B Designs: Brusho colours
Mixed Media World: bright Colours
Penny's Paper Crafty: anything goes
