Cabinet Die Card

Hi Everyone and a huge welcome to new followers. Tonight I am posting a cabinet die  shaped card.. You will see that I have made my own background using  a variety of stamps on all the pages. The stamps that I have used are mainly from Paper Artsy, though the sentiment on the back and dots/ hexagon images throughout the pages are from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Collections.


First of all I painted the whole card with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Paint in Ice Blue then I Stamped the images with Ranger Archival Inks in Magenta Blue and Coffee.  
On the second page ( below left) I stamped the Paper Artsy stamp on some tissue paper layering it over the image below  and edging with Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.
The main image on the right hand side is also from Paper Artsy and one of my current favourites.


On the 4th and 5th pages  I used the Paper Artsy Clockwork Birds accompanied by some cog stamps from the same set.



On the back I used a sentiment stamp from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Collection.


Random stamping was added to each page before inking with Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain DI's

Papers were added to the front of the card using Ranger Inkessentials Glue 'n' Seal. I then blended charcoal pencils around the paper to add depth.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:


Thank You so much for visiting and if you can please leave me a comment and I will return the compliment
