Matted and Layered Bird

There's a new challenge in town - Back to Basics - and the challenge is 'matting and layering'. These days, I make a lot of one or two layer cards, but I do think that matting and layering is a simple way of getting a more 'luxe' look.

Here I gold embossed a Hobby Art bird on black card and watercoloured it with Pearl-Ex paints. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

I'd also like to enter Make My Monday , embossing.

Your water coloring is pretty and ‘luxe’ is a great word to describe your card, it’s awesome!

I honestly thought that bird was done with fabric... It's amazing! Lovely card!

Wow, I love your bird, it looks so textural the way it is coloured. So pleased you shared your artwork with us in our first challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond. We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you again. Caz. DT.
