The World Needs More of You - Try Stampin on Tuesday #419

The sketch challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday #419  has an additional element of embossing, therefore the card I have submitted to this challenge uses heat embossing as well as dry embossing using an embossing folder.

I apologize for the lighting exposure of the card.  For some reason, no matter what I did I could not get the exposure right.

The thick Whisper White base is layered with a Whisper White layer embossed with the Delicate Lace embossing folder to which Balmy Ink had been applied.

The focal point of this card is the birds die cut with a layering square die from a larger image of birds sitting on a branch.  The die cut image was coloured with watercolour pencils and a blender pen after which Heat and Stick powder was used to apply Dazzling Diamonds over the entire surface.

After matting with Balmy Blue card stock, it was adhered to a square of Bird Ballad DSP situated at an angle  below it. This was adhered to the embossed card front.

A sentiment, embossed with Soft Suede ink on Whisper White, was added below the focal point,  A 1/4" glittery pink ribbon was folded below it.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Free as a Bird
Inks:  Black Memento, Watercolour pencils, Balmy Blue, Soft Suede, Versa Mark
Papers:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Balmy Blue, Bird Ballad DSP
Accessories:  Delicate Lace embossing folder, Clear embossing powder, Heat and stick powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals, 1/4" Petal Pink glimmer ribbon, Layering square framelits

So shiny! The card is lovely. I seem to have forgotten about using the heat and stick product with Dazzling Diamonds and I must remedy that! Thank you for playing along at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
