Stamping Sensations June Challenge

This month we have the wonderful Visible Image as our sponsors for our challenge at Stamping Sensations. They are offering a £25 voucher to spend!

(Please note though that in order to be eligible for the prize you MUST follow our challenge rules! You must have a stamp as the FOCAL point of your project - Please go to the blog and read before entering!)

I have used the bird from their 'Free Your Imagination' stamp set for our 'Anything Goes' challenge.

I used linen textured card as my base. 

Masked off the sun and inked with varying shades from Squeezed Lemondade through to Fossilized Amber.. adding a little bit of Wild Honey randomly over the top.

I double embossed the bird with WOW Pale Gold (Fine).

The tiny spots were from the SU Timeless Textures set and the feather was from a Bird set from Chocolate Baroque - used these because I thought the splats and the feathers in the original set might have been a little large for such a CAS design.

I have had the sentiment such a long time I have no idea where it came from but it seemed to fit the card somehow.

Layered onto matt gold card before attaching to the base card.

Hope you can find time to visit all my teamies this week who have made some great cards to inspire!
Looking forward to seeing what you create!

What a wonderful effect with the double gold embossing of the bird against that fabulous blended sun. Nice touch too with the tiny splats and tiny feather stamping x.

This is absolutely gorgeous Viv and the bird flying cross the face of the sun works so well, and the small splats and feather and the sentiment complete it perfectly. I love the matt gold layer too. A really elegant CAS card. x
