Inkspirational Challenge 48 - The Firebird

We have a picture challenge at Inkspirational  today and here's the picture, a fairytale illustration by Dulac.

I used a stamp by Basic Grey. I created the background by using inks and stamps on pearlescent card. There's a scrap of the gold patterned paper that I also used in my last Inkspirational DT card - I love it so I'm eking it out! 

Check out the Inkspirational DT posts. They all picked out different things from the picture, such as the trees or the bird.  Come over to Inkspirational and show us how this picture inspires you. 

I'd like to enter:
Our Creative Corner- shopping sins. (I'm always buying stamps. I've had the bird stamp for years but it's the first time I've used it!)

I love the photo, there are so many things on there to pick inspiration from! Your card is so elegant! Love the luxurious feel of this card, the bird looks fab against the the red inked background, and the black and gold details are perfect with this design!
