Oops, Trying again

Welcome again - why the title - I entered too many challenges in the Less is More Challenge yesterday, so I am trying again....

This time my bird is a whimsical one from Layers of Color named Royal Birds

The image was stamped and then painted.

I then masked it with an oval and sponged around it with gold ink.

The sentiment was then stamped in the gold and embossed - this shot shows just how shimmery the ink gold is.

The final detail was to sponge the card edges.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for calling by - May your day be blessed.

I like the way you have framed your bird image with the oval sponging. It looks very effective.
