Kingfisher In The Rushes

Just a quick post with this Kingfisher card.  I used two copies of the fab digi by Delicious Doodles so I could fussy cut the kingfisher. The top layer was then embossed with clear embossing powder and attached with my beloved foam tape for added dimension.  The lace was originally white but I coloured it with ProMarker Duck Egg so it would match the card.  Liquid Pearls were used on the lattice work and around the edge of the curve.  The insert was printed and the edges finished off with Pearl Ex - not used them before as had no idea what to do with them but decided to go round the edge of the insert with my Zig-Zag glue pen and apply the Pearl-Ex with a paint brush - worked a treat and will be using this method again in the future <g>.  I used copper to match the colour of the rushes, you can just see it peeping through behind the lattice work.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-


  1. Gosh, breathtaking. The colours are so vibrant and "kingfisher-like" - absolutely beautiful. Your quote is so true and so well illustrated by this card. I also Love the pearl effect behing your lattice - it adds a lovely, subtle extra dimension to your card. Gosh, I think you may be conquering my phobia - see, I've studied a bird card in detail - that's progress :-) Lovely card though Treasure. Love you xxxxx
